    Comments about Blackburn Road Mirror:

    I know what is road conditions and traffic are in front of me but I want to equally know what is happening behind me when I ride. Be smart and add this very simple mirror and really see what is coming behind you. The size is perfect and allows a quick glance to see a wide clear view of
    traffic.

        Comments about Blackburn Road Mirror:

        This mirror gives a good view of the road behind without resorting to a convex lens. This is a flat lens. With a convex lens mirror I used previously I was almost killed when a car which appeared far back was actually very close. The mirror holds its settting well if you remember to tighten its adjusting ring tightly. The one drawback I have is that it sticks out far when I hang my bike in the garage.

            Please read my previous review.
            Since then my mod has worked ok but still slipped. Next, I cut a dimple into the faucet washer and layered a piece of tire tube between it and the ball joint. While I had it apart, I noticed that the plastic backing that the ball originally was supposed to seat into is warping from the pressure. My conclusion is that the design does not place enough compression and friction on the ball joint to hold it at an angle. My current mod seems to be holding for now, but I predict that it won't last since it easily bumps out of position if i brush it with my arm as I muscle my bike around.

            Ball joint slips

            Comments about Blackburn Road Mirror:

            Works good, as is, until you hit some bumps. As in my title, the ball joint slips no matter how much I tighten it. I tried a faucet washer in hopes of increasing the friction against the ball. It helps, but I think instead I'll try a cut piece of tire tube so that there'll be more direct contact with the ball
            The mirror itself is great. I recommend taking the bike to a parking lot and do the adjustment next to a lamp post so you can use the lines of the parking spaces to orient it while you sit in riding position using the lamp post to keep from falling over. Installation was easy... Couldn't believe someone asked for more detailed instructions...

                There's a lot of traffic in Honolulu. I'll feel safer being able to see what's coming up from behind.

                  Comments about Blackburn Road Mirror:

                  I already have a mirror that fits on the end of my handlebar, but it jerks around a lot so I was looking for something more stable. Boy, did this NOT fit the bill! First of all, the installation instructions must have been designed by Picasso because I could not visualize how to attach to my bike handle. I finally figured it out, and although it felt unstable, I went for a ride anyway. Within seconds of riding on smooth, fresh asphalt, it wiggled to the point that I could only see sky in the large mirror (the only redeeming value of this item). Sent it back and am waiting on a refund.

                  Comments about Blackburn Road Mirror:

                  For loaded touring (with bar-con shifters), you basically have two options for a rear-view mirror - this one and one of the various sunglass-arm or helmet mounted mirrors. The helmet mirrors are great for lack of jitter and wide field of view, but are all monocular - you can only look with one eye - so distances are harder to judge. This mirror lets you see behind with both eyes, with a very good field of view, so you can both see the lane behind you and the one next to you *and* judge distances quickly.

                  However, it's not perfect. If you drop your bike on the side with the mirror, about half the time you'll break the attachment arm, and it's not reparable. Because the mirror is attached to the bike, on rough roads, the mirror jitters a lot. This can be so bad on dirt roads that the mirror's only marginally useful. And as others have noted, IF YOU HAVE THE ADJUSTMENT TOO LOOSE, the mirror will change position when you hit a big bump.

                  Sorry for the shouting, but some of the reviewers don't seem to have noticed that there's an adjustment - a kind of locknut - to lock down the connection between the mirror and the support arm. If you have that nut fairly loose, the mirror will change position easily. If you tighten it down, you can make the mirror only change position on a bump bad enough to potentially damage your wheel. If the mirror changes position too much on bumps, tighten that big plastic nut - it's under a rubber cover at the right end of the mirror. Pull the rubber cover back, rotate the mirror and nut together up, then hold the nut in place as you rotate the mirror back down. Wala - tightened. Repeat if you want it tighter. Put the rubber cover back.
