    Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

    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!

        Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

        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.

          Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

          This mirror solves the otherwise sticky problem of providing info on what is around you without making you look dorky, without breaking off your bike, and without denting your wallet. Blackburne offers an unconditional replacement on all of its products, so the only time I buy a new mirror is when I buy a new helmet. Truthfully, though, the design and availability of extra two sided tape means I could easily just switch my mirror between helmets, Unlike other helmet mirrors, this one is easily adjustable in all three planes.

              There was no way to mount the mirror so you could see upcoming cars to your left. I could either see the sky or more like a 60 degree angle to the left. Not a rear view to see cars and other cyclists coming up behind you. Then I went to package it back up to return and the mirror head broke off.

                Comments about Blackburn Helmet Mirror:

                I've been using one of these mirrors for 5 years or so after receiving it as a gift from my parents. It doesn't replace turning around to see what's behind you but it is essential in maintaining awareness of your surroundings. It helps if you close one eye as you're looking into it to get more clear image. It's true if the road is bumpy that the mirror can pick up a lot of vibration but basic details can still be made out and that's the important part for me. Sure there are other mirrors that attach to your bars that give you a wider view but in my experience this gives a more accurate perception of distance and it does not have a blind spot like other mirrors.

                Recently purchased a new helmet first thing I did was attach the mirror to it. I've recommended it to multiple friends and fellow cyclists.

                        Installation can be a challenge on bikes with built in visors.
                        Took a few rides to get it dial-in, so you have to be careful setting the helmet down undialed-in.
                        I've used helmet or glasses based mirrors for the last 30 years and feel unsafe without one.

                        I didn't find this hard to install, as other reviewers have reported, and it's sticking to my helmet just fine. But it vibrates while riding to the point that I'm kind of just guessing what's behind me. I've used one that attached to my glasses, and that worked great (until it got run over by a car). I'm a daily commuter and won't ride without a mirror, so I'm stuck with this until I find something else.

                              Mirror stem is too short placing mirror too close to eye to allow focus and creates a large blind spont. Most helmets will not allow mounting in a position that works due to the vents. Mounting must be very far forward on helmet.
