Once you use it, it will be hard to ride without it

I started using a mirror as a ride leader for a local cycling group so I could keep an eye on cyclists behind me. Once I got used to it which really didn't take long, I felt I was missing a critical piece of cycling gear whenever I rode without one.

The regular version may be a bit too close to the eyes for most people since it blocks a lot of your peripheral vision. I find the extended versions works better.

The mirror slides onto the eyeglass temple pieces. Some eyeglasses, particularly the fancier cycling eyewear, have oddly shaped temple pieces that may make it difficult to mount these, so take this into consideration.

In general, I found the eyeglass mounted mirrors to be more effective than helmet mounted or bike mounted mirrors. Helmet mounted mirrors inevitably get dislodged since they are generally attached with simple adhesive. Bike mounted mirrors tend to vibrate too much for my taste, and don't have a wide enough view to get the full picture of what is behind you.

Good connection, but I'd prefer a smaller mirror.

The system attaches securely to my Oakley M frame glasses. It's a little difficult to get on , but once connected, it's on to stay.

I'd prefer a smaller mirror that doesn't create such a large blind spot. I have the longer mirror and I think the short one would be even worse.

I think this will be more durable than prior plastic mirrors I've had.

The one. The only

I've tried a few of these mirrors. This one is the only one I'd recommend. It's also the only one that people on my team (Grizzly Peaks Cyclists) rides with.

Buy one.

You won't be disappointed.

The best - nothing else even comes close

Excellent mirror. Literally gives you eyes on the back of your head. Go for the full length - the compact is too short to see much of anything behind you and the full size isn't as heavy as you'd think.

Had tried several different mirrors, this one best so far. Even had to get three more for my wife and two friends

Adjustable and sturdy. When put on my glasses, it stays there, no chance of falling off. Great rear vision with it.

Excellent Rear Visibility

I have worn sunglass mounted rear mirrors for years. I used to use the round ones but decided to give these a try. These provide more of an image of what is behind you.

Being able to see the motorists behind you gives one a chance at survival when they move into the bike lane and especially when they cut off a cyclist when making a right hand turn. I cannot remember the number of times the mirror has saved me from a major crash with a motor vehicle. I am always dumb founded when I see other cyclists go by without any means of seeing what is behind them. Mirrors are ridiculously light weight, don't look nerdy and provide huge safety benefits. I cannot ride without one.

Worth the price, no one can put a price on safty.

I bought two of these cyclists mirror. I use one for early dark thirty with clear lens glasses, the other cyclist mirror I use on dark sunglasses in the afternoon. I see all vehicles behind me and this allows me to avoid accidents.

Works as advertised

This is a replacement mirror as the first one did not survive a broken crank-arm crash. I have definitely enjoyed not having to crank me head around trying to look behind me. Was hesitant at first, thinking that it would block my forward vision but this has not been an issue. Would recommend this for those who put in a lot of miles on the rode (i.e., Randonneurs).

It simply works!

I live in central Ohio, and there has been an an absolute epidemic of IDIOTS hitting cyclist with cars over the last year. (Do not let me get on a rant about that....) This product works well and fortifies peace of mind and safety. This mirror does not vibrate, which allows a clear view. Good product.

My favorite mirror

I've tried other mirrors. This has the best view - clarity and width of the field of vision. After figuring out the best adjustment, it stays put while riding. Two lengths are available. I prefer the longer one.

I attach them to glasses that have fairly strong plastic frames. The clamping mechanism can slip a little depending on the frame so I use a couple wraps of dental floss to make sure it doesn't slip.

I'm a bike commuter, so keeping an eye on traffic is a big deal. This mirror works quite well.

Great price and great product.

I was skeptical but ordered one for my wife and myself. I would never ride the road without one anymore. Very durable, easy to fit on my oakleys and provides a full view of the entire road behind me. Just a glance is all it takes. It's really piece of mind to know what's going on behind you, without having to crane your neck around and wander all over the road. Takes a few rides to get used to and trust it. But it's an awesome product and after looking at the other brands out there the quality is excellent. Get the small one if your using it for sunglasses, fits perfect.

Best rear view mirror

I like this one because it's easy to use and it's the right length. I've tried ones that attach to the bike and one's that attach to the helmet, and this one is my preferred mirror.

A sure life saver on narrow two lane roads

Mounted this on my back up helmet, since I would never ride without this safety device in South Carolina(SC), the roads are just too narrow, the teens drive too fast, then there are those on cell phones doing what ever. This mirror stays where it is put, even on these rough SC roads, very impressed with this product. Con - could be a bit longer, just an opinion.

Great Mirror

I've had several if these. Which is not to say that they are fragile but rather small and I have lost some over time. I live near very narrow and twisty old roads and this helps me see the cars before I hear them. I tried other mirrors a long time ago but never found any that were particularly useful so I keep coming back to this one. Most use a plastic mirror that has bad optics and too much vibration. This mirror is much higher quality and the attachment arm is more solid. I set it up so I do have to turn my head a touch to view the traffic rather than always having it in direct view. But it works much better than alternatives and is pretty low profile. I do prefer the larger version.

not for everybody

nice product, mirror size is adequate, fits my Oakley flak jackets, one thing about a mirror like this is it's always in your peripheral vision which I don't like. I used it on Cycle Oregon Weekend to honor the mirror requirement.

Excellent - a great safety item!

After riding years without a mirror, this was a great safety improvement. The price is very reasonable. The mirror (compact version) mounts & removes easily from my glasses. The adjustments are secure & there is no vibration. Very simple, light & works great!

Will not ride without one

If you ride in town or on roads with cars, you cannot do without one of these mirrors. Easy to use once you have it adjusted, and it stays adjusted. Easy to view behind you s there is minimal vibration.

Most excellent

I have used the shorter compact version of this mirror for years, and like it better than the longer mirror. It works extremely well, and is an excellent way to stay constantly aware of traffic behind you. I can't imagine cycling without one.

Absolutely the Best Cycling Mirror

I discovered this mirror several years ago after breaking I don't know how many plastic mirrors trying to clip them onto my cycling glasses. Lightweight, durable, and the rectangular mirror has a much better field of vision than any of the round mirrors. Mirrors are essential for safety (would you drive a car without a rearview mirror?). This one is absolutely the best out there.
