    Mirrycle mirror?

    Anyone know how to put a mirrycle mirror on a handlebar on a Tadpole bike? Specifically a Sun Tadpole?

    Does one cut away the rubber on the top, or is there an easier way?

    Probably, but I don't own a Sun trike. On my EZ Sport and Catrike Road that's all I had to do.

    This is just a suggestion but on my Catrike Speed I instead of punching holes in the rubbers I installed Bar Ends below the Sram X9 shifters, it also allows and gives you room for mounting of other things like computers, Air Zound and so on. Just make sure you get the right length Bar ends so the mirror fits correctly.

    Fishcube, Thats what I had to do when I used to own a Sun Tadpole but if you have wide hips you might have a hard time seeing around em. The idea that Ric is talking about just might work better.
