rearview mirror for road bike

I've used the "Mirracle" mirror for flat bars, but I'm having a tough time finding something for aero brake levers and or road bars.
Any suggestions? I don't care for the helmet mounted mirrors BTW.
thanks!

I like the Mirrycle mirror so much that I would cobble up an adapter to attach it where I wanted it. Easy for me to say since I have a friend with a machine shop in his garage. My next choice would be to use a clamp on aero bar mounted where I needed it that the quill fits into. Expensive unless you happen to have a set laying around.

Maybe this is something you can use. I haven't tried it and would be concerned with the long stalk vibrating, assuming you'll mount it sideways, but you can always contact them and see what they say.

I'm not familiar with the Miracle mirror, but Blackburn makes a mirror that takes the place of a bar plug on your road bike. I was very happy with it.

Here's a link to the same mirror Raiyn posted, but at Performance. I've been wanting to try this one out too.

Try here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW. I have one and it's the best solution I've found so far.
