Strengths:    Good view behind, good if you ride in traffic
Excellent when standing on the pedals, since you then can't see through a handlebar mirror, vibration is reduced when standing


Weaknesses:    Awkward to adjust (easier with practice)
Vibrates badly, especially when seated on the saddle, and especially when going fast. It's better on a smoother road surface. The vibration can be bad enough that you can't really see what is behind you
The mirror droops due to vibration. I have to readjust it approximately every 3 - 4 minutes; this makes it close to useless. Pity 'cos it's really good when correctly adjusted, and when the road surface is smooth.


Bottom Line:   
Great idea, I love it - it just doesn't work very well. I may give up with it, and I may try a different make

That said, go check out rvgbike(dot)com or Rearview Gear on FB. It's just now hitting the market, but we've been testing these since ... Read More »

Helmet mirror not working out.

Tried a helmet mirror today and found it quite annoying. Hard to get it set up and hard to look through with my left eye. Not sure I like it at all. I taped it on so I can still move it around. Any suggestions on mounting the mirror? Its a third eye pro.Read More »
