Poor view; Poor mechanisms
on 27 December 2014
The mirror is not very big or convex, so the viewing angle is too limited for me. Maybe that's due to my slightly poor (not yet correct -- madness I know) eyesight and also perhaps I'm cognitively not very good at processing small images, I don't know.
I also find it hard to get the stiffness right and keep it the same -- I have to use my multi-tool to adjust it every now and then. The mechanism for attaching it to the handlebar seems a bit single-use too -- after unmounting and mounting it, I've found it doesn't rotate properly, though I've managed to turn it into the correct position with some extreme undoing and force.
The benefit of not having to turn to look behind is hardly worth the extra width and the hassle for me. In fact, maybe I'd be safer just learning to check behind better by turning my head and upper body. Maybe it'd be useful if I was old, but I'm not and if I was I'd probably buy a better one.
