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
So I'm racking up the miles on my bike now and I'm loving every minute of it (except the saddle, I hate the saddle. And it hates me back !)
I'm happy with all the aches and pains that putting miles on the clock brings, but the one thing that is getting me is the crick in my neck from looking over my every minute or so.
I'm generally a confindent rider and I have alway thought I am well aware of my surroundings, but since being pranged by a VW Polo (I'm not even sure they realised they clipped me !!!) a few weeks ago I've been a little more cautious.
So now I'm looking at bike mirrors. And all the riders I know say they don't bother with them for one reason or another (they vibrate, they always get damaged etc)
So I'm after a any recommends as to some good mirrors for a road bike.
