Do you need cycling mirrors for your bike commute? Testing 4 types of bike mirrors.
I’ve been commuting for years, and never felt the need to uses bike mirrors. But I think cycling is about practicality, and if mirrors help make a bike commute more safe and practical, then I thought it was time to give them a try.
Here are the mirrors I tested below:
- 0:19 – Hafney Handlebar mirrors (thanks to Hafney for providing this test product)
- 2:45 – Corky Urban (thanks to Corky for test product)
- 4:32 – The Myklops (thanks for the test product)
- 6:39 – The Take-a-Look cycling mirror.
One note on the Myklops: I did a poor job of showing off the extending arms of the mirror that enable it to be arranged in a way that shouldn’t require any movement of the arm.
