This mirror is fantastic. I bought it to replace a helmet mounted mirror when the stem broke on the helmet mount. I can't tell you how much better I like this bar-end mirror. It's much easier to find this mirror out of the corner of my eye, and it provides a very good view of what's behind me, both in the traffic lanes and directly behind me in the bike lane.

I did have to mutilate the grip on my handlebar to remove the plug and cut out and opening for the mirror, so just trying it out requires some commitment, but once it is mounted the installation looks clean.

I didn't have any significant trouble with the installation. The directions are a little bit unclear about what to do with piece that goes inside the bar (the directions say to "secure" it, but you need to leave it loose, securing only the nut, until it is inside the bar). If you look at the piece and think about how it's going to hold the mirror in place, it's pretty obvious what to do with it.

The mirror itself stays put very well on rides. It shakes a very little bit, but really only little. The stability is surprisingly good for a piece for which it is so easy to adjust the angles.

All the parts can be replaced individually if broken for about $4 each plus shipping.

I have now used 3 types of mirrors for my road bike for both commutes and long tours: Take A Look mirror, the Mirrycycle round "mountain bike" mirror on the bar end, and the Sprintech bar end mirror for drop handlebars.

Short review: I like Mirrycycle the best.

I bought the Take a Look mirror based on the strength of reviews from Amazon and I was a little disappointed.

One strength I was expecting from the other reviews was being able to always see behind me no matter which position I used on the handlebars and without having to move my head like when you look down at the bar end mirror. This was kind of true, but you had to get your head to the same angle. I found the angle for the top of the bar to be very unnatural in the lower grips. It was impossible to tilt my head up that far on my bike with aero bars. In order to see back and to the left while on the brake hoods I usually had to tilt up and twist my head and when down on the lower grips I had to tilt WAY up and twist. You can't check behind you without moving your head because you have to do a lot of sweeping motions to see all around behind you and those are more uncomfortable in the lower positions.

I used Take A Look for a couple weeks commuting every day and doing long rides on the weekend and I sort of got used to sweeping my head around to check behind me, but the deal breaker for me was that most of what I saw while commuting was my backpack.

Verified Purchase
I use a Giant Transend LX (the Honda Civic of commuter bicycles) to do my daily commute to work. It's about 8 miles each way, mostly through neighborhoods and a few short stretches of busier roads. I bought this mirror because it received excellent reviews, and I didn't think I could get used to a helmet-mounted mirror. I'm pretty good about turning my head to check for traffic, but I thought that this might be better since I wouldn't lose sight of what is in front of me when I check.

I received it quickly after my order, but found installation to be less than simple. For my bike, the end caps on the bars come off easily, but neither the large nor the small "wedge" that came with the mirror fit into the hole properly. The large was too large, the small was too small. Let me explain the wedge system. While the photos show the mirror fitting snugly into the handlebar end, in fact it will not look like that for most bikes. A piece with a larger circumference attaches to the bottom section using a bolt and screw. The tighter the screw, the more the wedge-shaped piece moves toward the rest of the arm. I found that if you tighten it completely, the wedge moves past parallel with the arm. It's difficult to explain, but the wedge system is not well made.

I ended up ignoring both wedges and just used a nail to act as a shim between the normal arm piece and the handlebar hole. It's stable and snug. My only other option would have been to file down the larger wedge until it fit properly.

That said, now that it is in place firmly, the mirror itself is great. It is just rounded enough to provide a view of a whole suburban street, and shaking is minimal.

This is a fantastic piece of engineering! When I first put it together, I thought it seemed a bit silly -- why does it take three bolts and half a dozen washers to strap a mirror on to a grip?

Here's why:
* The first bolt runs into your bar end, pulling two plastic wedges over each other to expand into an internal clamp, providing a firm attachment to any size bar end.
* Each other bolt/washer combo is not meant to prevent motion, but rather to allow it: you screw them down firmly enough to prevent slippage, but not so tight that you can't spin the plastic piece: height, horizontal angle and vertical angle. Bloody brilliant! And, if you're a clutz like me, you'll appreciate that this means most impact angles with trees, parked cars and "the ground" just fold the mirror back, like a car mirror, rather than crushing it -- spin it back, and you're back on the trail, no repairs needed.

So: five minutes of installation (read directions, cut hole in rubber grip if necessary, pop out plastic bar end plug, thread three bolts through plastic parts and tighten with the included hex wrench) and you have a mirror large enough to see the entire road/trail/mob behind you that is attached firmly enough not to vibrate or wobble, and can be adjusted one-handed while riding.

Mine was on my bike for less than a day before my wife demanded one for her bike too.
