Mirror for hybrid bike

Time to change the subject off the 900 lumen lights, any suggestions for a favorite mirror?

I've gotten kind of fond of the mirror I bought from Rivendell(rivbike.com under handlebars). It attaches really easily to any handlebar, stays in adjustment pretty well and doesn't look terribly geeky.

I'm a big fan of a helmet mounted mirror. Presently I have one of the Chuck Harris mirrors that I bought about 5 years ago.

What I like about a helmet mirror is that you can use it whether you're in an aero position, sitting upright, or a standing climb. By moving your head you can pan and tilt, which goes a long way to reducing blind spots.

I love the Mountain Myrracle on my Hybrid. Excellent view with the convex mirror, no vibration, full adjustability, big picture, easy to monitor while riding without stareing at it, etc, etc, etc.

If you're interested in an eye/sunglass-mount mirror, you can pattern the version I came up with, or follow the link in my signature. Thanks
