Solution needed for fitting a mirror on Ergo bars (Bull Cruisers)

Hello,

Has anyone managed to find a mirror (or make one) for Ergo (Bull Cruiser) bars?

I used to see chrome plated mirrors mounted on a long stem with a form of P-clamp sold in department store bike departments. one of them might clamp onto your bars where ever you need it.

I realize this doesn't answer your specific question. However, have you considered a (sun) glasses or helmet mounted mirror? I use a "take a look" brand mirror and can't imagine using anything else. It took me years to talk my wife into trying such a mirror, and now you couldn't take it away from her.

Hello and thank you both for ideas and info!

@Hillrider, I do remember them being sold here too, but now all you can find is the ones that can mount at the ends of the bars.
@Old Hammer Boy, although I've never tried using a helmet mirror, I'm always open to new ideas!

...so basically I've discovered what you've both suggested on eBay, and they're cheap enough to have ordered both!

Thanks again!
