Thread: Tripods on bicycle frame

    Default Tripods on bicycle frame


    Anyone know if there are racks for mounting tripods onto a bicycle frame?

    I want to take my 190cxpro3 out when i'm cycling - i have a camera bag already but wouldn't mind mounting the tripod where the water bottle rack normally is..

    aside from tying it on with a piece of string, any ideas?

    I DIY a sling for my tripod using the strap from a bag.
    Just sling it over your head/shoulder.

    Use a heavy duty velco to fasten it on the main frame of your bike and you're good to go! Been there, done that, proven workable!

    I've actually cycled with my tripod twice on my road bike.

    I just rest the tripod (which is in the tripod bag) on the bike's top tube. I used the tripod bag's sling to sling it over the bike's handle bar and the seat.

    It was quite secure although a little uncomfortable as one of my legs have to "open" bigger to peddle
