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.
Thank you for your feedback.
