Great mirror. But in fact I used left-hand-side one when cycling in USA, and bought a rhs version to 'add', now that I am back to cycling on opposite side of road (in Australia). But, elbows are always in the line-of-sight. I've actually found it more useful to put the lhs one on the rhs side of the bike, but mounted to go underneath the handgrip. For upright riding position on an e-bike, this gives a clear line-of-sight, with no obstruction from elbows. You still need to mount as far out on handlebars as possible, but consider putting the 'opposite' side one on the underside of handlebar, esp for upright position on e-bike, esp if you naturally keep your elbows in a wide position! But mirror gives great wide view of what's coming up behind, better than helmet-mounted mirror. And joints can be tensioned so mirror keeps position, yet is still easy to adjust while out riding, or if you do then bump it on something.
I have been looking for a decent bike mirror for a long time now. I took a chance on this, as it looked like it would do the trick. I am happy to say that it fits my bike nicely, mounting right next to the gear shift on the left grip. It adjusts well, and is real glass. Best of all, I can now clearly see the cars coming up behind me. Seems well built and solid, yet time will tell. Today was my first ride using it.
I read a review of a person who bought this for a Specialized Crossover and liked it. I had a Myricle mirror--the kind that locks into the end of the handlebar tube. That doesn't work on the Specialized, because they install the hand-rests with a screw. The advantage of this is you can set the hand-rests exactly where you want them. The disadvantage is you can't install a mirror at the end of the handlebar tube. This mirror solves that issue. You set it up next to the shifter, moving the brake handle over enough to do that (half an inch). This works well--the curved arm reaches out far enough for the mirror to provide a useful view of traffic coming up on the left. Installed very quickly for me.
Great overall product. I purchased the left mirror, because when I am on the road, I typically stay to the right. So, I want to look to my left slightly to see cars coming behind me. Just for reference, I'm a pretty big guy at 6'3" 210lbs, I ride a Trek mountain bike.
This mirror was very easy to install. I moved my left gear switch slightly so that this mirror was directly against my handlebar grips. Once I tightened it, the mirror hasn't come loose at all, at least on roads, sidewalks and simple trails. I haven't gone on any crazy bumpy trails yet though. There are two bolts: one to tighten the whole assembly onto the handlebar, and one to tighten the mirror itself. You can adjust the mirror in all directions, it has a ball joint that allows the mirror head itself to swivel. Then just tighten the bolt that holds it so that vibrations and jolts won't move it.
Field of view is good.I can easily see any cars coming behind me. I don't have to move my body at all to see behind me (just shifting my eyes to the mirror is all that's needed) so the range of the mirror's arm is great.
Not much more to be said! Easy to install, doesn't move once installed, can easily see behind me.
Highly functional, lightweight, sleek, modern and low profile. Excellent mirror(s) Easy to install, requiring only a U.S. (not metric) Allen wrench. Manufacturer states mounting bracket work with 22.2 mm circumference handle bars only. This is true with the hardware that is prackaged with it. However, I installed these mirrors on my larger mountain bike handle bar by going to Lowe's and buying a set (2 per pack) of M6 - 1.00 x 30 screws at a cost of $2.14. These screws are the exact same circumference as the ones that come with the mirrors, but a bit longer. This allows you to install these mirrors on your handlebars that are a bit wider than 22.2 mm.
