Cheap! Does the job despite its limitations. – Universal Flexible Bicycle Rearview Mirror with Mount Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- Decent build quality (for the price) - EXCELENT price. Got four of these.
Cons:
- Flat mirror (you get what you pay for) - Very sensitive to vibration. (again, you get what you pay for) However, due to the price, these cons are perfectly accepted.
Other:
Rearview mirrors on bicycles are mandatory for road use in some countries (ex: Brazil). These will be sufficient to use on good roads. Not recommended for use on shaky roads. Takes some time to find the perfect position for installing.
Bottomline:
These are not the best bicycle mirrors I ever saw, they are no match for brand-named mirrors, however brand-named mirrors cost a lot more and are prone to be stolen by anyone that sees your bike parked. These are cheap, it is better to get a lot of those to have as backup than to spend 10 times the value of these on a brand-named mirror, just to be stolen on your first ride to work (as happened to me...) oh, BTW, the thieves don't even bother to steal these... LOL
