I have ape-hanger bars, and would like a pair of mirrors to mount there. A lot of the lowrider guys use these - they look pretty good, but I donít know if they jiggle on the road.

What do you use?

I have these on a (repro) Coal Krate

(No jiggle. I imagine those you show can be tightened satisfactorily, too.)
