    Good mirror for cruiser bars?

    For the long curvy bars on our commuters, the usual bar end mirrors won't work well. Does anyone have any suggestions on specific mirrors that would work for them?

    For a good clear view of what's behind you I find scooter mirrors mounted with a "P" clip is ideal.

    The view is almost like a car it's so wide!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    If a Mirracycle mountain isn't long enough, suggest looking at a recumbent specific mirror - they are usually longer.

    Go to Calhoun Cycle's website and look at the various "Evo" mirrors. These are Mirrycle mirrors with brackets that attach to the handlebar.
