    not cheap but safe

    maybe you can doo something similar in diy.

    if you prefer mountainbiking the best way is to carry your cam in a backpacker. no suspension is as good as your legs

    Nope. I looked into buying a Klein once, but the guy wanted what he paid new... 6 years after he bought it.
    This is a Montague Paratrooper.

    I think their prime goals were to have a bike that'd fold as compactly as possible, while retaining a lot of commonality with the majority of mtn bikes out there, for parts availability.

    That’s an excellent idea of setting up a camera on a bike. That looks very sturdy enough to hold the weight of the camera while riding the bicycle.

    I was assigned to photograph bicycle cops back in the days of film.

    I put a Gitzo ball head on a Manfrotto clamp... clamped to the seat-post with a N8000 and electro release.
    Not sure how it would have faired in the rain though. Got some neat photos... anyway most unique and secure way I ever carried a camera on a bicycle.

    I usually just put the lightest camera I have in the saddle bag.

    I toured several months with a 4x5. I put the lens in the front pannier, right side, thinking to protect that side if I went into a crash. Yeah, right -- the one big crash I took had me over the handlebars and the front wheel/handlebars ended up rotated180 degrees! But everything ended up okay.

    I had the camera in its pack on top of the back rack -- pretty well protected by the panniers.

    On short trips with only the Rollei, I use an over-the-shoulder bag that works well in keeping the vibrations down somewhat. The bag ends up on the middle of by back, so my balance is fine. I just hope I don't crash and burn.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
