Road bike mirrors
Mirrors are a shit idea, I can think of no peeing your pants situation on the road where a mirror is going to save you. Watching the truck ploughing into you because the driver is oblivious.... won't help much.
And breaking a mirror is so many years bad luck.
I can see the point for a commuting journey.......but not on your normal roadbike cycling.......

Mirrors maybe don't help you much in the 'peeing your pants' moments but used properly they do help you to avoid them in the first place.
Not on a road bike at speed.
Well, it looks like the subject of mirrors fosters as much debate on here as it does with my cyclist buddies.
I think I've made my mind up to try the Bike Eye. I don't think it'll do any harm and if it is no use them I have only wasted £20.
I'll let you know how I get on when I've riden with it for a while.
I tried one of the clip on helmet mirrors in my LBS at the weekend and I can give it a resounding thumbs down. Any thing that is constantly in your periphery can only be a distraction imo. That's why I've opted for the bike eye, as it is attached to the frame and isn't in your line of site unless you glance down.
Cheers for all the replies guys.
Nick L. I'm currently trying to decide which saddle to upgrade to at the moment. That'll probably be my next "please recommend me a........" thread, lol
