I am a biker from the Netherlands and I am looking for drop bar rear-view mirrors made by Mirrycles that can be attached to the brake hood of drop handlebars. ( See: http://www.mirrycle.com/originalmirrycle.htm[/url] ). They seem no longer available though the manifacture claims they are still available. Does anyone know an (internet) store that has them in stock?
'''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!
The bike shops stopped carrying them after "aero" brake levers became the norm since their mounting area disappeared. The advent of STI/Ergo levers killed their sales completely.
I had them on several older bikes and have adapted a couple of aero levers to use them by cutting a flat on top of the housing and drilling and threading it for a long M5 bolt. Now I use the Third Eye bar end mirror and have found it very satisfactory.
