I can't afford the crg's like I want, but these are darn near disposable at $10 a pop. (from a local mountain bike shop) :razz: I think I'm going to run them upright, and the view is actually a ton better than the stock mirrors.
For something as simple as mirrors, there is a wide range of prices and quality. I bought some on e-bay, fitted them droopy-style but struggled to see behind easily. I then tried with mirror-up and it seemed perfect straight away. Always knocking the lefthand one when I get off the bike, so have to adjust it regularly and that means it needs tightening up every week or so. High maintenance mirrors...ha ha.
i just cut it with my chop saw and drill a through hole...i left the stock bar end and ran a bolt that was the right size...at high rpm it vibes a little but i just move my hand out against the mirror...i only use the mirror for two things anyway...at red ligts to make sure the idiot coming up behind me is going to stop and to scan for fast moving cops on the highway...for that it works just fine
cool. good find. they are inconspicuous enough to get by or work well, for the day you want to upgrade. i'd prolly go with the 'up' position just for seeing sake.
my only one small comment would be (wondering outloud here) how they would handle at speeds? are they rigid enough and stable enough, to stay in place at speed?
(are the tolerances enough, or are they tighten-able?
good finds are good finds sometimes.
