Customer Reviews

Mirrors are too small and too distorted.
Tyree
The surfaces of the mirrors are not perfectly curved (I find this to be true with most plastic mirrors), so you do get some distortion.
DrummerBoyInCalif
First of all they are very sturdy and built of good quality.

I love the idea of this... sleek, out of the way for transit but

readily available on the road, protected when not in use. Unfortunately,

the reality is a hard to use product that does little to improve road safety.

Because of the narrowness of the mirror, it's very difficult to focus on what

is actually behind you with a quick glance. Sure, if you sit there for 10

seconds you can figure it out, but I don't have that sort of time when I'm

dodging through Chicago traffic!

Save your money and buy the excellent Mirrcycle instead.

Mirrors are too small and too distorted. The picture on the package shows a perfect reflection - as if!!

It's about as useful as taping two foil-wrapped sticks of chewing gum to your handlebars and expecting to be able to see reflections in them.

Uncomfortable and heavy for bar ends and useless as mirrors. As mentioned, the mirrors are of a terrible quality. To top that, they do not stay in place when adjusted.

I purchased this item because I needed a mirror (I use my mtn bike for occasional commuting and hauling a kiddie trailer) and a set of bar ends for those long rides. I liked the clean looks when the mirror was folded away.

The grips actually feel not too bad when the mirrors are closed, but when the mirrors are in the open position, it feels a little strange gripping a hollowed out bar. I would personally prefer a solid rounded bar. Also, because of the design, rear view is pretty narrow top to bottom, so these are only good for riding on smooth surfaces. I should add the mirrors are convex and not flat. The surfaces of the mirrors are not perfectly curved (I find this to be true with most plastic mirrors), so you do get some distortion. You'd get much better field of vision using a helmet-attached mirror or by attaching a larger rounded mirror to the handle bar--though with this set you'd have two mirrors.

Otherwise the construction seems sturdy enough that I would think the mirrors would survive minor collisions and falls when closed.

I was trying to use a mountain mirrycle with bar ends and it was not working out; so I deceided to give these a try. First of all they are very sturdy and built of good quality. The other reviews are correct in that the mirrors are convex plastic and have a small field of view. I have found that after a using them for a couple of months I have gotten used to what I am looking at and they work quite well. You must keep them clean though; finger prints and smudges can really distort the small viewing area. Overall I think these are a good solution for mountain bikers who sometimes ride on the road or people in suburban or rual areas. I would not recomend them for heavy commuters or messangers in crowded urban areas as the field of view is too small and the convex aspect makes traffic appear farther and smaller. Bottom line: Will I replace these if something happens to them? Yes I will.

Verified Purchase
Want to see the whole world through an amusement park funny mirror? Enjoy the challenge of squinting at swirls and blobs behind you while simultaneously dodging traffic and potholes? Get these worthless (albeit stylish) add-ons and you'll wonder if you're actually seeing traffic hurling at you from behind, or if this is just another one of those flashbacks from that Kool-Aid acid test you "accidentally" stumbled into back in '68. While absolutely useless as mirrors (they're actually concave slivers of chromed plastic), they do offer some stunning special effects-- cars change size and shape (a la Transformers), floating pedestrian torsos scurry to meet legs waiting across the street, buildings furl like flags in a breeze... and all this as you fly down the road on your otherwise respectable bicycle trying not to injure others or get yourself killed.

I paid $10 for these on Amazon, but I've seen them retailing for $40 in local bike stores. If you MUST have these, please send ME your $20 right away instead and I will immediately send you two stainless steel soup spoons you can strap to your handlebars-- a VAST improvement over these pieces of garbage (dropping LSD and riding your bike backwards would be equivalent).

I find these mirrors an elegant and subtle solution to all the standard, clunky-looking bicycle mirrors out there.

Admittedly, the mirror-angle adjustments are not as precise as they could be; rather than using preset detents, Topeak would have done better to make the angle infinitely adjustable within the arc. My solution to that problem is simply not to fully tighten the mirror assemblies--just enough to stay in place while allowing me to rotate the entire assembly in either direction on the bar. (I should add here that I NEVER use the mirror assemblies as grippable, weight-bearing bar-ends, ONLY as mirrors.) This minutely adjustable rotation allows me to tune the mirror angle in very small increments.

As for the quality of the mirrors themselves, I have no problems at all. Everything behind me appears in a sharp, wide angle view.

The only problem I've had--and this is my own fault--is catching the open mirrors on something while backing up my bike and snapping them off. But in the normal, everyday, non-doofus world they work fine. And if I happen to sideswipe an object while in forward motion, the mirrors obligingly fold inward, none the worse for wear.
