Most of the comments I have read about this subject in the past say that it is better to mount the camera on your helmet than onto the handlebars or onto the bike. Apparently there is more vibration when the camera is fixed to the bike.

Manfrotto super clamps and magic arms work really well - there are cheaper options though
