CatEye – BM-45 Bar End Bike Mirror, Black
- SLEEK: With minimal projection, you don’t have to sacrifice clean aesthetics for safety.
- CLEAR ROADS: The Bar End Mirror offers nearly distortion-free viewing so you can see the roads clearly and accurately.
- DURABLE: This aluminum and glass mirror will help keep you safe time and time again.
- FOR ALL BIKES: The Bar End Mirror fits both drop and flat handlebars.
- I had another barend mirror, but cars appeared so small that I couldn’t see them early enough to prepare for them.
- It stays in place even on rough terrain but my knee will occasionally knock it.
- Easy installation, very clear, and large enough to see cars coming from behind/the side.
- Won’t ride without one; I bought two of these for my commuting bike and my road bike.
- Bought this on recommendation as the perfect sized road cycling mirror – not too big to be goofball, and not too small to be useless.
- Didn’t want to chance that a replacement would have all the parts so opted for a refund.
CatEye – BM-500 G Bike Mirror
- The scratch resistant mirror is convex for wide angle viewing and is super easy to install.
- They work great for simple paved trail and road riding.
- We’re not extreme mountain bikers, we don’t do road races.
- We put between 100-500 miles on our bikes in a year, just hopping on them and cruising around a neighborhood or paved trail.
- These were easy to install on both Trek Hybrid bikes, they’re easy to adjust, and they haven’t slipped out of place for us.
- I remove them when transporting the bikes on hitch carriers for fear of them getting bumped around and broken.
- I’ll buy these again and recommend to my family and friends.
- Installed it on my bike, already didn’t like because the arm could bend to outside, but it is ok.
- Many people complain about it not being stiff enough to hold the position.
- I see this as a pro feature since I have drooped my bike on the mirror side and thanks to this design it has been able to bend and twist to protect itself from cracking.
- I do find it a little annoying that after riding far and rough terrain it tends to lose its position.
- The swivel mechanism is a little loose but not loose enough for wind to change position of it.
- But that is good so if it hits something like a branch it will swivel and not break off.
- Really folks, is it THAT hard to readjust your mirror???
- It mounts above the plane of the handlebar – I had one which mounted off the end and another below and in both vision was blocked by my arm and body.
- I think this is because this is not a good first surface mirror but a cheap plastic mirror.
- Also, it is hard to tighten the mirror enough so that it will stay in place and not be too tight and hard to adjust or break if hit a little hard.
- Which brings me to my major complaint – the little plastic stem holding the mirror proper to its bracket is too easily broken.
- One clipped to my helmet – horrible, and another fit the end of the handlebar but never was secure.
- It attaches easily and securely, and it adjusts to a good viewing position and provides clear views.
- You do have to cut off the end of the handlebar grip, but that is easily done.
- Very happy with this product – I ordered another for my wife’s bike.
- Great functionality and rear view, very easy installation.
