That is extremely clever. Might do that for the MTB!!!

It's a good looking rig.

The one addition I would make to a rig like this is to drill an additional 2 small holes in the side of the PVC pipe, between the two Fly6 mounting straps, and run some heavy duty fishing line (or similar) through them and the offset holes in the mounting bracket to tie the pipe onto the bracket. This should prevent losing the pipe in the unlikely event of the screw working loose or breaking and will prevent the camera mounting straps from sliding down the pipe due to vibration.

i checked out one on a guys bike in a cafe on the weekend. They are alot larger in real life. I guess battery and lens etc. is going to take up a bit more room. But I was quite surprised as to how big they are.

Not as Frankenstein as yours, Oxford, but since I still wanted my saddle bag on the bike and the seat post wasn't long enough for the Fly6 as well, this is my attempt put the Fly6 on top of the seatstays. The seat post clamp is between the two holding straps and I added all the inserts to make the Fly6 vertical. Will try it out on tonight's commute and see whether it works. I also put my seat post light back on behind the Fly6. I could probably put the Jumbo 808 #16 camera back on under the saddlebag as well, but that would be overkill. :)

It isn't touching the brakes. The squiggly cord to the saddle is a small cable lock, if anyone was wondering. :)

Hilarious, I got my Fly6 last week, and was thinking to myself "It would be really easy to just bend the reflector mount on the rack, attach some pvc, then strap the camera to it". Glad to see it works before I give it a go this weekend.

I also thinking of going a bit fancy and cutting off the bottom couple cm on an old seat post I've got, and using that instead of some pvc. But I'll probably get lazy and just go with PVC.

Think of the grams you'll save with PVC. :lol:

If anybody wants to fancy it up with a section of old cf post cut to length...

And this frankfly could be used for mudguard as well.
This is what I'd do for my SKS chromoplastics
Remove rear reflector
2 holes now, measure them c2c
drill holes in PVC with same c2c measurement
zip tie on, or screw on
Mount fly6

Fly6 mounted on a recumbent with very thin stays.

Andrew - you reckon it'd be possible to mount it on seat stays?

Hi guys - while we don't support any of these systems, it's great to see all the creativity. My favorite FrankenFly6 so far is here (http://bit.ly/1qFOQ0S).

Not sure if you are allowed to do this here or not but I'd be happy to give an Adaptor Pack (http://fly6.com/products/) to the most creative FrankenFly6 as judged by the administrator...

The wooden mount we made for my wife's bike with rack / panniers.

Added some reflective tape for good measure.

Tried this on my bike but I'm going to try some other options.

I went for more of a GoPro adapter. My initial attempt to use the adapter with a rack mount failed. I had a K-Edge under saddle mount. On the first attempts, the mount scrunched my saddle bag too much. I since relocated the mount for under the bar to over the bar and added an extender. I made a video with Fly6 on both the original adapter and the GoPro mount each with and without the saddlebag. There are some train tracks near my house with shake up the image quite a bit. The original mount was the most stable, but nearly useless with a saddlebag. Surprisingly, the GoPro mount was more stable even though it still scrunches into the saddlebag a little.

I hop the photo comes out. I have several more.

Hi,
Being short and loving my Carradice bag left no room for my Fly6 ver2.
Took reading the forums and plenty of thought to get to my solution.
I used a Tacx behind seat bottle carrier and short carbon fibre tube to mount the Fly6.
Here are my pictures.
