1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Rubbish!, 18 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Cateye Bm-500 Race Mirror (Sports)
I must admit that I didn't buy this mirror from Amazon. I bought the Cat Eye mirror on the strength of their reputation for quality products - BIG mistake! It fitted easily enough and looked good but, when sat on the bike, all I could see was a perfect image of my elbow! Because of the angle of the upright and the fact that the mirror mounts in the middle of the lens it's not really a bar-end mirror, as most of the mirror sits just above your right hand. Also the stalk attaching the mirror to the handlebar mount is only about three millimetres thick and very flimsy. The first fall I had, which was only a very minor one, was the end of the Cat Eye. I now use a Zefal Cyclops mirror and I'm extremely happy with it, excellent rear visibility, easy adjustment and reasonably sturdy. I certainly wouldn't recommend the Cat Eye mirror to anyone as I think it's not fit for the purpose intended and very flimsy for the price paid.
