    Mounting GoPro to non-round frame tubes - Ideas?

    Anyone have any DIY ideas on how to mount a gopro to the frame - considering most frames are not round these days?

    Please refain from stating the obvious - which is to just stick one of thier mounts to the frame - I don't want something stuck on/semi-permanent.

    I have a Trek Fuel EX8 and would like to mount it to the top tube about in the middle so it can capture the handlebar movements, etc. I tried mounting on the seatpost looking forward but my shorts covered it up to much...not to mention looking at the back of my legs the whole time.

    Thanks for any suggestions - Picture suggestions would be great!

    What would that look give you that a chest mount wouldn't?

    Probably nothing...I just don't want to wear a chest mount.

    They make a roll bar mount that is pretty huge, I had one mounted on the downtube on my dh bike.

    You could always add longer screws/bolts from the hardware store if you need to increase the diameter

    I just bought the roll bar mount as I wanted to try something different than the handlebar mount for larger diameter tubes and hopefully the non-cicrular frame tubing on my bike (2010 Trek - Gary Fisher Wahoo). I will update with a link when I get a chance to try it out and do a real test mount. The mount itself is still in the bag.
