    mirror help mtn biker riding on road

    Hello-

    I am brand new to mountain biking, but am doing mostly on road with hybrid tires. Can you guys offer advice on a helmet or bar end mirror. I tried the Bike Peddler Take A Look this evening and could not see a thing. I seen over on MTBR the reviews of that product were road bikers. Because of lying down if you will they can see more with this thing. I could see nothing. Really would like a helmet mirror but mayble that's not an option and only barend. Thanks for advice.

    Here's your answer. You can order them from any bike dealer or places like Nashbar.

    Bike Peddler Take A Look works fine for me and most of those I ride with use them.
    There are 2 models, compact and regular. The regular or original is a bit longer.
    When you put hem on, keep your head straight and try to catch the mirror at the corner of your eye. It may take a few tests (at home) and you should be all set.

    The advantage of mirrors on the glasses vs the helmet is that glasses do not rattle as a helmet may, certainly not up and down.

    I have had good luck with the Mountain Mirrycle. I had it on an X-Mart fauxMTB, and transferred it to my Univega Trail hybrid. I don't ride off-road much, but the mirror can be folded if you expect to be riding where it is likely to get clipped.
