I did a search for "mirrors" and didn't see a "show us" thread for them, if there already is one then Mods please delete. However if there is NOT.......... This thread isn't to argue for or against mirrors, there is plenty of that elsewhere on the forums. There is a thread over in the Commuting forum discussing mirrors and some of us started posting pics of our mirrors there. I got to thinking that it might be a good idea to have a "show us your mirrors" thread so here it is. This is for members who use mirrors to post pictures and comments so people considering mirrors can get a good comparison. Post pictures of your mirrors mounted on your bike, helmet or glasses. List the brand if known or a source and list your likes and dislikes of the mirrors you're using or have used in the past.
My beater bike uses Mirrcycle bar end mirrors with one section removed to tuck them in closer to the bars. When I first used the Mirrcycles years ago I snapped off the stalks 3 times in less than a year but since going to this setup I haven't broken one in the 14 years since, having said that I will probably break one tomorrow. I get no road vibration except on severe washboard and in that case what's behind me is the least of my concerns.

My TREK uses motorcycle mirrors I found on eBay, they are bar end mirrors but clamp onto the bar insert so I was able to adapt them to trekking bars by removing the insert and clamping them directly to the bars. Again, I get no vibration, these are all aluminum with glass lenses. They may be a bit pricey for bicycle use but after using them awhile I feel they were money well spent.
