I'm getting ready to set up a new bike for commuting. It will be a "road" bike with dropped handlebars. I am looking for advise regarding a decent workable solution for a rear-view mirror.
Let me just say that I am a big old guy - 6'1", 245 lbs, 54" around the chest, 38" waist, with 24" wide shoulders. Also I've never developed the flexibility to look over my shoulder while riding a straight line. Just to give a clear impression of what I'm dealing with, here's a pic - as you can see, I'm not endowed with the typical roadie physique:
Currently, for riding around on my LHT, I use an eyeglass-mounted mirror, but I'm not entirely happy with it, as when I'm riding in the drops my shoulder blocks my view. I think that I might be better served with a handlebar-mounted mirror - perhaps either a bar-end mirror or one mounted on a flexible stalk. (My "commuter" bike will not have bar-end shifters as does my LHT.)
Looking for something reasonable durable, and vibration free. Obviously, too, it has to see around my bulk . I was intrigued by a pic on the commuter bike pic thread, owned by FreddyV (Freddy, Hope you don't mind that I copied your pic.) - looks like a good solution.
What works good for you guys? Any suggestions?
