Let me first say that mu vision is NOT 20/20. Actually it's 40/200, with my right being my good eye. I can NOT use a helmet mounted or glasses mounted mirror.
I use a Bar End Mirror. I have two Blackburns, a Mirrycle , and a Rhode Gear. The Rhode Gear is round, the Blackburns are oval, and both mount with a Velcro strap. The Mirrycle is round and mounts with a wedge plug inside the bar end. I don't like the Mirrycle because it became cloudy- I don't know if it is defective, or if it got left out in the rain too much. The Mirrycle also is the most convex, making the cars seem the smallest.
The Blackburns and the Rhode Gear are excellent . I would recommend them to a friend. All are easy to readjust if a pothole knocks them out of position.
I would rather have a bar end mirror- I want to see the cars behind me, not check the zipper on my trousers. The mirror needs to be to my left.
