I use it all the time. I purchased both the original and the compact sizes. For my type of vision only the original works. The compact's image is too tiny for me.
I've tried several different mirrors and this is by far the best. I doesn't vibrate while riding and it's easily adjustable. Customer service is awesome -- they really stand behind their lifetime guarantee. If the mirror cracks along the pivot point, Bike Peddler will happily send you a new one. I've tried both lengths; regular works best for me.
I have a bar end mirror on my hybrid bike, but bought a new Carbon road bike and didn't want to add that. a friend of mine suggested this mirror to wear on my glasses. Only took a bit to get the angle and sight line adjusted - I LOVE this thing. Even took off the parabolic mirror extending from my drop bars because I never looked at it before. Based on reviews, I went with the small size and it is perfect for me. Lowest cost safety device I own.
Love the mirror. My wife and I have used the 'Bike Peddler Take a Look Cyclist Mirror' for at least 12 years. We mount the mirror on our sunglasses. My recent purchase was for the purposes of having a spare handy in case we loose one of our mirrors. Thus, I did buy this product again.
The mirror is attached to an arm which sits in a tubular holder. My first time using this, the mirror fell out of the holder on a section of gravel, lost forever.
It was hard to adjust and did not stay in place securely. I did not try to replace it, just considered it a failed experiment.
Must have item for your safety. Cars and e-bikes come up behind with no warning . Bike paths have now become dangerous as these e-bikes come speeding past you with no sound.
First time I used this was on a gravel ride. I spent a good deal of time adjusting the mirror while riding to the start of the gravel; as soon as we hit the gravel, the mirror got knocked out of position. I attempted to remove the loose part of the mirror for safe keeping, but it fell off and has now taken up residence on a gravel road in Shokopee, Minnesota.
It was a good idea, but it simply didnâ€™t work for me.
I use this mirror every time I ride my road or commuter bike. It makes me feel safer while riding in busy roads. I have given a couple of these mirrors to friends.
I've been using this mirror for about 8 or 9 years. It works for me. This is only the 2nd one I've needed to purchase in all this time. It connects to my prescription sun glasses easily and securely. I'm 71 years old and my head doesn't rotate as it once did. This mirror helps with that problem.
Well its a rearview mirror so it has to be adjusted correctly to do its job. The key thing is the glasses it is being used on, it has to be secure so you can make minor adjustments along the way with out it coming off.
It attaches to my sunglasses and is angled for maximum and sufficient rearview. For several weeks I have used this item, the first of its kind that I have used. I have no complaints about it at all. I ride city streets with lots of motor traffic multiple times a week. No longer need I twist my neck around to see what is behind me. If you ride your bike where cars are driven, there is nothing to decide but to get this mirror.
I've used several mirrors. This is unquestionably the best. I usually carry two or three on overseas bike trips as people I meet all want to know where to get one.
Adjustments made easily. Sturdy construction. The only problem I have is where to store my sunglasses. I haven't tried taking the mirror on and off.
Granted it looks a little dorky, but now that I have a mirror I don't feel complete if I am on my bike without one.
I prefer the head mounted mirror to the handle bar mounted variety, less vibration, easier to control field of view.
