- Road – anyone use a mirror?
I use on on my commute to give me prior warning of cars before they pass at speed.
Mine is a cheapy one (off eBay) that plugs into the bar end. It has a plastic mirrored surface and when set right gives a good view of the rear view. Ideally needs gluing as any small bump in the road and I am watching the sky! 🙂

Yes, have a tiny cat eye one, mounted around the steerer, below the stem. Never gets adjusted unless I knock it (v occasionally) with my knees when stopped at traffic lights.
Gives a great view which complements the over-the-shoulder looks.
Even more helpful when you’re towing/drafting a slower rider behind you.Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
Used to have the cateye bar end mirror on my commute, great for riding in traffic. Tightened up sufficiently it never needed adjusting.Posted 4 years ago
It was great for a quick look to see if it was worth doing a full shoulder check, if something’s there no need. Means less time looking back at cars, you only need to look to make sure it’s safe. Don’t rely on the mirror though, they’re pretty small
