by fromNot Good Every time I've taken a spill or mountain bike is bumped over by the kids, the mirror has broken off at the hinge or bracket. It gets pretty expensive to replace @ [$] a pop, especially when there other mirrors more crash proof.The rubber bushings either do not grip the inside of the bars or try to squeeze out of the bars.

by fromSpontaneously combusted This was one more disappointing bike mirror. The components seem very heavy-duty, and the image quality is excellent, but after less than a dozen rides the 2 pieces came apart while I was riding along a smooth road. This left the mirror portion on the ground, of course. The mechanism at the joint had failed, and couldn't be found.

by fromdidnt work for me Nice mirror when it stayed attached, but the rubber stoppers did not fit well with my Novara handlebar and it would come off.

by fromgreat view and, not so durable or stable Installed easily in my MTB bar end after cutting away the rubber grip end cap but was a little floppy because the rubber stopper mount isn't very precise. It needs adjustment before every ride and it broke after 2 or 3 bike tip overs, not crashes, just tipping over. It's cheap and the view is nice, just not durable or too convenient.

by fromGreat value! I purchased this mirror because I wasn't satisfied with helmet-mounted or other too-small, plastic mirrors that scratched easily. This has a 3", slightly convex, glass mirror that provides excellent visibility. The double, knurled rubber rollers function as cams that constitute an extremely secure attachment method. I was concerned at first that the bar-end-mounted mirror would be a hazard, extending too far to the side, but this has not been the case. Shortly after I bought the mirror, my bike (a 33 pound mountain bike) fell over with the mirror hitting the ground first. The mirror broke at the bracket, but by taking advantage of Third-Eye's $6 repair service, I was sent a new, replacement mirror for the one that had broken. I am very pleased with the service I've received from this small California company and have recommended this mirror to my friends.

by fromTerrific product! This is a great mirror! Far better view than with helmet-mounted mirrors. Wide field of view, no vibration, easy to adjust, folds out of the way for trail riding. Sure, if you crash a lot, or like to just dump your bike on the ground, a bar-end mirror can break, and may not be a good choice for you. But with reasonable care, this product is very durable. I have one that has survived ten years through all sorts of riding, and I love it!

by fromFinally found a mirror I'm happy with! As someone who wears glasses, I have never been able to adjust to helmet mounted mirrors. On my old MTB, I used the Mirrycle Mountain Bike mirror which was great! When I switched to a road bike, I considered the Mirrycle Road Bike mirror but I wasn't too thrilled with the mount which attached to the STI brake/shift lever and the potential for damage to that component from an impact. I tried several other mirror styles in vain and finally was happy with this model. It fits into the end of the drop bar, has a clear image with no distortion or vibration and holds its adjustment perfectly, although it didn't at first. The reason it now holds its position well is because I replaced the screw that passes through the rubber parts that fit into the handle bar end with a Phillips head screw.(you'll have to remove the screw that holds the mirror portion to do this). I snugged up the rubber core, then inserted it into the bar end and tightened it with a screwdriver. Then I reinstalled the mirror head. This provided a much more solid fit.
