    Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

    Under normal use, the sticky
    pads work, which are provided. But because I've had the mirror come loose, I use epoxy glue to secure the base to my helmet.

          Have tried several positions on my helmet but none so far allow me to see any rear view. Maybe too short. All plastic is chinzy.

          Will return it to Nashbar.

            Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

            After more than ten years, I lost my Blackburn helmet mirror in the undergrowth when I road through instead of under some overhanging branches. I wanted an identical replacement. You can place and adjust this mirror to see what you need to see and it stays put. It vibrates, as other reviewers have noted, but I don't need to read license plates, just see the car coming. For me a mirror is a must on streets or anytime I might be overtaken.

              Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

              I read the reviews. They were right, it does vibrate so as to be almost unuseable. It also has a limited range of adjustability. So much so that I can not get it to give a useable rearward view without rotating my head to the left. Maybe I'll try a glasses mounted mirror next.

                    the stem of the mirror is too short and puts the mirror too close to your face making it too hard to use.

                          Shakes on bumpy road which makes it hard to see.

                            I have 3 of these for each of my helmet. Like other reviewer complaints, it does vibrate to the point it is useless. However, my workaround has improved it drastically: Take a bamboo BBQ skewer and cut it to the length of the shaft. Then attach it to the shaft and wrap it with black electrical tape. This stiffens the shaft so much that there is hardly any vibration making the mirror very useful! Before you throw yours away, give this a try!

                            If Blackburn wants to improve reviews of this product, they need to stiffen up the shaft. Ironically, this product has been around a long time (+30 yrs) when it was made by Rhode Gear and the design has never changed. I know because I still have my first mirror from them!

                            Got it installed. Vibrates too much, useless, not able to see anything. Worthless.

                                I replaced my helmet after an accident recently, and added the Blackburn helmet mirror to the order, because I have always ridden with a mirror, over 100,000 commuting miles in the last twenty years. The mirror seems an elegant design, but mounted properly on my new Bell Ghisallo helmet it vibrated so much that car headlights danced annoyingly at night, and blurred during the day. I will replace it asap with another brand. I have bought Blackburn products for many years with great results prior to this purchase.
