3.0 out of 5 stars Essential Equipment 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Essential for cycling on the road. Of five mirror systems I have used this has been one of the best. Leave it in position on glasses with thick arms or the plastic will fatigue and break. Mine failed at 375 days!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Fragile. 30 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Although the mirror is usable and gives a reasonable view behind when cycling, It is only suitable for spectacles that have quite thin legs and it is altogether too fragile.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 23 Jun 2013

I was very disappointed. The Idea is good, but the mirror itself does not give a good enough image. I would have preferred a small panoramic mirror (curved) possibly made in plastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light and effective 1 Jun 2013

Only had it a few days - works a treat, good visibility as long as you're not too low on the handlebars. It's light, and needs to be, but not sure how strong. Time will tell!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but could be right for you 29 May 2009
By R. Lesniak - Published on Amazon.com
The three mounting tabs are NOT adjustable. If your eyeglass frames are too thick, you can't bend the tabs to adjust - they will likely break off. However, with regular glasses or sunglasses with thin arms, these will work great. I find the mirror size to be just about right, and I don't find it obtrusive. You'll want to adjust it so that you have to raise and turn your head a bit to see behind.

The arm and mirror pivots are a little loose and tend to move a bit when you take the glasses off, so I find myself making small adjustments when I'm leaving for a ride. Not a big deal. It holds the adjustment well while riding.

Don't bother with mirrors that mount directly on the bike. They shake too much to be useful. Plus, with a helmet or eyeglass mount, you can get a panoramic view just by turning your head. Can't do that with a handlebar mirror.

TIP: Once I got my mirror set the way I like it, I put a drop of Super Glue in each of the two ball-joints to permanently lock in the adjustment. I never have to fiddle with it again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be more durable 5 Sep 2007
By Bryan Cochran - Published on Amazon.com
I have owned 1/2 dozen of these over the years and they tend to last no more than a season. Plastic attachment tabls fatigue and break off. Works great when it works. I usually keep a spare since there is no warning when it breaks and I have come to depend on the mirror. Mirror is also a little heavy. My sunglassess ride crooked with the mirror attached. So I will try a different brand next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third Eye Cycling Mirrors 6 Aug 2009
By Mariano Alfafara - Published on Amazon.com
I respect the other opinions expressed here, but I can't imagine how some people are experiencing these problems without solving them. I too, have encountered some of the same issues, but I was able to quickly resolve them, ie, use glasses that don't have such thick frames, etc.
These mirrors are a really a great product. I use both the glass mounted or helmet mounted versions; depending on which helmet I am using. I wouldn't think of riding without one of these mirrors...like having an eye in the back of my head, In both cases, a head turn of 15-20 degrees will provide a panoramic rear view. Can you imagine driving your car without rear view mirrors?

1.0 out of 5 stars Breaks easily 20 Dec 2010
By Ziggy - Published on Amazon.com
I tried two of these. The plastic mounts broke when trying to put them on my glasses in cold weather. The plastic becomes brittle and snaps off. The "Take a Look" mirror has sturdy metal mounts and has a wider field of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job--READ THIS SOLUTION FOR BROKEN MOUNT 11 Oct 2010
By Romanza - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This mirror works fine, takes a couple times of riding to get used to it, but I found it adjusts easily and has plenty of range of motion for adjustment. If you adjust it correctly you simply turn your head a tiny bit to see cars behind you.

I would never rely on this mirror in checking traffic before making a turn, of course look over your shoulder for that! This is more to keep from a car coming up on you to surprise you or to warn you if someone is too close to the curb not giving you enough riding room.
(The instructions say that the mirror is unbreakable, which is nice to know that even if I don't survive the accident that I can pass the mirror down to my heirs : ))

There have been some other reviews that state the mounting arm is cheap and breaks easily, while this hasn't happened to me yet I have examined the mount and way it attaches to your glasses. There is a very easy solution if the mount breaks, it can be secured with inexpensive cable ties from your local hardware store. These cable ties are pennies, you can get a whole bag for a few dollars and they will easily secure the mirror to your glasses arm. The issue with this is you will need them semi-permanently mounted to your glasses which means you'll need a dedicated pair of glasses for bicycling. The ties can be carefully cut off with a razor or good knife if you need to undo the mount.

This unit is only $10 so you can't complain too much about the durability, the mirror itself is very durable and is optically of a very high quality, so I can't see complaining about this unit even if the mount breaks. Its only ten bucks. I give it 4.5 stars.

HINT: you may want to start off my leaving this mounted to a pair of glasses that you can use as a dedicated pair of riding glasses. This will probably prevent the mount from even breaking if you leave it on. Even if this isn't your first choice, it will make the unit last longer & it probably won't break at all. Taking the mount on and off every time you ride is going to put extra stress on the mount & of course it probably will eventually break. I leave mine mounted to a cheap pair of polarized glasses for $15 that rival my expensive Maui Jim glasses in performance.
HINT 2: Measure your glasses arm before you buy this. If the arms on your glasses are wider than about 1 cm you may have trouble getting this mount to sit right. If you wanted to mount it in a semi-permanent fashion with the cable ties I previously mentioned you should have no trouble on thicker arms, but I think this unit was designed to work with glasses arms that are not overly thick or not more than a cm wide.
Hope this has been helpful!
