Strengths:    Wide variety of places to mount using this system. Solid and stays put once mounted. Different length mounting straps for different applications. Very simple system. Locking pivot head to mount the camera at virtually any angle.

Weaknesses:    As noted, a tad pricey for some rubber straps and the mount.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this as an alternative to my helmet mount. I mounted it to the headtube - well, close enough; the top tube right up against the headtube so the camera sits alongside the headtube. With a Lefty and this mounted along the right side of the headtube, I get great, stable unobstructed views of rides. The mount went on easily and stays put without undue tightness of the strap. I haven't tried it on any other surfaces, but it stays put on my anodized frame. The camera goes on and off easily and, so far, hasn't come out of the indented mounting position. Mounting on this strap makes it easy to see at a glance where the switch is (on or off), though the red light that shows it's recording is pretty dim in the bright sunlight.

I used it on a 3 day 150 mile trip and the camera was solid and stable for the whole trip.

All in all, a good system so far that works as advertised.

Strengths:    The rotating pod device that contain the rails for the cam to slide onto rotates and locks down which provides at least some choices of angle.

The flex strap will fit a variety of bike tubes.

Weaknesses:    No matter how much you make it tight it still slips some. One can also pull a muscle or suffer another minor injury while pulling on the strap so hard to make it "flex" to the next hole in an attempt to make it super tight on the tube. The cam attaches via the RAIL device which is an inherent weakness of the Contour mount system.

Bottom Line:   
While good in theory, it still has too many limitations to overcome to be considered a product that brings much joy. 25+ dollars for a few pieces of rubber is a lot of money. For maybe twice that you can have a nice mount from RAM (just google) that is very Very VERY steady on the bike and will provide for all sorts of adjustments due its ball and socket design.
