It's a decent mirror but I have a burning desire to cut the shaft in the middle and add a couple of shaft couplings and a piece of shaft to extend the length. I have it on drop-down bars and half the view is obscured by my arm. If a longer shaft can be supplied, I would buy another one from you.
I love this mirror, the best on the market for drop handlebars. I wish it came with a longer stem and a larger mirror size. The shape of the mirror is genius.
Maybe it is because I am tall and quite a distance from the mirror but it's size limits it's usefulness. Who knows there may not be a perfect solution on a bike.
I have bar end shifters so can't try a bar end mirror.
Superb clarity and the ability to see even small animals and chidlren, very adjustable. The connection between the mirror and the stem that holds the mirror and allows it to pivot needs improvement. When traveling downhill at speed, when you hit a bump in the road, the mirror pops off the stem and falls to the ground. I have had two mirrors scratched up in this manner. I ended up getting the position that I need and glueing the mirror in place. The situation I described occurred in Maine during the recent Bike Maine and I was able to get replacements quickly. I live in Florida and have had no problems.
I've tried a lot of mirrors and this one is the best. It has a large viewing range and it's lightweight. Not much more to say. It works.
Tried a couple of different mirrors. One gave me a perfect view of my reciprocating knee. The other made me dizzy the way it jumped around. This mirror Perfection! It's just like looking in my car's side view mirror. And it stays in place. I haven't been over rough terrain, so I can't comment about that.
I have tried a lot of bike mirrors over the years and this one is the best, especially if you have drop bars. The easy to install mirror has a strong nylon/plastic strap that lets you mount the mirror right at the spot where the brifter hoods meet the bars, so the mirror doesn't interfere with your hand positions.
Moreover, the mirror has excellent optics- it is not extreme wide angle like some mirrors (which makes it difficult to see cars that are more than 50 feet behind you), but is slightly wide angle and gives you good visibility to see any traffic that's closing in toward you.
I have this mirror on both my bikes and am very pleased with it in every respect!
I believe in bike mirrors but I do not like the helmet or glasses mounted type. This mirror works great, it is adjustable, it is clear and easy to see traffic and just is what a good mirror should be.
All the other ones jiggle loose as you ride- this one stays put. A bit large and a bit heavy but I think that's what you need to get the job done. It works- buy it!
[...] This mirror does shake a litte, but they all do, and it is very light. Objects are closer than they appear, but the wide field of view is very helpful. I still use a helmet mirror to see what is really close, but this mirror warns me of arriving rear traffic long before I detect it in my helmet mirror. You can't have too many mirrors if you ride in traffic!
I use this mirror on all my road bikes because it provides a great view of the road behind. It mounts easily even on drop bars, adjusts well, and provides a large clear image. It's also reasonably durable. Many of my fellow riders ordered one when they saw how well mine worked.
Easy fit on the Trek gravel bike drop bars. Lightweight, great price, wide angle and easy to adjust to keep tabs on traffic and my riding partner.. canï¿½t believe I waited so long to get this..
To be useful, the mirror must be placed below the left grip (I placed the clamp just to the inside of the grip). The view it provides is helpful, but is very small and the wide-angle surface, of course, means very little detail can be seen, if any object is seen, you must presume it's a car approaching. So, I'm glad to have it, it looks much better than a large and heavy mirror on top of the handlebar, but the view to the rear is limited and mine needs to be readjusted periodically where it swivels.
Great idea, can attach many ways to a bicycle, But the mirror distorts the images making is dangerous. Images seem further back than there are.
