I attached the mirror to my helmet visor. Took awhile to adjust the mirror and make myself look out of my left eye. Once that was mastered, the only thing is at each ride I had to readjust the mirror as the helmet gets bumped around - taking in on/off and stored. These are not big issues - we all adjust.

This mirror fits securely on my glasses and is fully adjustable. The size is enough that I have great visibility. I have tossed the other mirrors that I own and use only this now.

I've been commuting more and more on my bike, so I decided to stop snapping my neck looking over my shoulder and get a mirror. I got the compact model, trying to get the lightest one. I have thin painted metal arms on my glasses, but the mirror's 3 point mount had no problem squeezing onto the arm. There's a left-right adjustment and an up-down adjustment. I'm sure you can set it up to get the angle you like. I have mine set so that I still look to my left maybe 20 degrees to see straight behind me. I figure that way, cars will still see that I'm checking.

The brass sleeves that let you do the adjustment are tight, so that once you make an adjustment, they don't slip. I've dropped the mirror quite a few times and neither has anything scratched or broken nor has it come off adjustment.

The only complaint I have about it is still weight. I wear my helmet straps over my glasses, which I guess is not fashionable in some quarters. Between that and the limited range of angles my head is at when riding, my glasses sit fine. But if I need to get off and check my bike or otherwise look really far down, the weight of the mirror is enough to start dragging my glasses off my nose. I'm going on a bike tour soon and definitely plan to bring a croakie to secure my glasses.

If I lose or break this mirror, I'm definitely getting the same one again.

After 30 years of riding this is my first mirror purchase and I couldn't be happier with it. Takes a while to get used to it and find a position that works, but once you figure out what works for you it becomes second nature to use it. Absolutely no issues with vibration or movement while riding. Biggest problem is moving it by accident when I forget I am wearing it and strike it with my hand or arm...operator error. Great tool for safer biking.

My left eye is blind. This mirror is adjustable it's great for me, because I can't turn around far enough to see.

I just started riding with it. I had used another mirror type and so far I enjoy the large vision I get out of it.

I don't see out of my left eye and can't turn around far enough to see what's coming up on me.

Some riders think it is not cool but when your alternative is getting run over by a truck I will take not cool any day.

I hope over time it does not flop around and stays tight.

Provides a large viewing area.
rating

The viewing area seems to be bigger than othe mirrors. It can be used on different glasses & is very mobile. There is a small learing curve in positioning the mirror. I like it better than mirrors attached to the helmut, which tend to fall off after some use.

Don't Let Its Looks Fool You

First of all not only is it safer knowing what's behind you, it makes for more pleasurable ride. Imagine driving 100 miles in a car wo rear or side view mirrors. I know this thing looks something Benjamin Franklyn designed but it really works. Initially the wonky, archaic look of the mirror turned me off but later I discovered the genius of the design. It's super light, thin and highly adjustable due to all the moveable joints. At first it will feel a bit awkward having something jutting out in front of you but you'll soon get used to it.I also use their helmet mounting device. It's nice not having anything attached to your glasses. However the glue that came with it is worthless. I got around it by using tiny screws and Gorilla Glue. I'm giving it 4 stars because the 3 rubber friction padding that slides over the arm of the glasses tend to slip off.

This mirror is stable and does its job.

I attach this mirror to plastic frame safety glasses when I ride. It grips well and, once adjusted for view, stays in position over bumps. The field of view is fairly large and is effective for seeing overtaking vehicles and cyclists.

Mirror works fine, but I find I prefer the 3rd eye, you can fold it back when off the bike.

If I stop to eat or shop, I take the Take a Look mirror off, the 3rd. eye folds back out of the way.

Wouldn't bike without one.

Have a Third Eye mirror and bought two of these for others. Really nice. I use it on my sunglasses and find both types equally useful, altho this one seems sturdier, classier, more like precision machinery than the plastic 3rd Eye. Not to deny that plastic has advantages in being rustproof. These have a big advantage over a mirror on the handlebars in that they point where you want them pointing, and an advantage over one attached permanently to a helmet, which will eventually get knocked off when the helmet's not being used.

This is THE MOST important safety bike safety item you will ever buy.

There is not another bike mirror out there that is as effective as the the TAKE A LOOK cyclist mirror. Tilt the mirror diagonally for a panoramic view of two lanes of traffic behind you, distortion free vision, early warning of that car in your lane in the city, alertness to that quiet vehicle hanging a little too close on that narrow country road, watch that last hill you just topped for the too fast, unable to safely pass car behind you, keep track of your slower fellow riders, don't run off the shoulder to look back, save your life with constant traffic alertness without taking your attention from the road in front of you.

I have been saved from incidents by my mirror MANY more times than I have every been saved by my helmet.

I give them to my foolish fellow cyclists who don't have one.

I even wear mine when sitting drinking that cold one at the end of the ride... no more 'back to the wall facing the door'.

I love this product. I bought one several years ago. I used it when I walk for exercise on a bike and walking trail near my house. I would put it on a golf cap. I needed it because there are some stupid or uncaring bikers and joggers who seem to take delight in getting as close to you as possible when passing you without alerting you.

With this mirror I can see them coming and do not get startled when they pass so close. It has a high quality mirror and is easy to adjust right where you want it. I like the fact that it does not magnify and you see the real picture.

Unfortunately, I dropped mine and scratched the mirror. I immediately ordered two more so I will have a backup.
