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.
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.Read more ›
* Reasonably rugged (it has already survived one bad fall)
* Glass mirror that won't scratch easily
* Convex surface (affording panoramic view)
* Easy to assemble and mount
* Replacement parts are sold separately ($6 for the mirror itself, a few bucks for the other parts)
* Aesthetically pleasing
* Glass breaks
* Instructions could be clearer
* Convex surface (causing things to appear more distant than they are)
The BLAH, BLAH, BLAH:
At the beginning of this month, I bought a bike, after many years of not having ridden one. My previous bike was a mountain bike. This bike is a mountain bike. And you know what they say: You never forget...
I hadn't forgotten how to ride.
However, the first time I rode this bike (on city streets), I realised how vulnerable I was to the great FEAR FROM THE REAR (as it's called now). Somehow, that wasn't even a consideration when I was younger, but now, I'm a bit more cautious... not paranoid, just cautious.
Well, consider this:
Together, my bike and I weigh a bit over 200 pounds. Odds are that even the most gas-efficient hybrid bearing down upon us from behind weighs in excess of 2000 pounds.
While I am pumping two pedals hard to achieve 20 mph, the person -- eating a sandwich and talking on his cell -- at the helm of that hybrid is doing in excess of 40 mph with only the weight of his big toe on one pedal.
Is it fair to postulate that if great effort requires great concentration, then little effort requires little concentration?Read more ›
* 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.
