My Mirror Is Broken

Broken Mirror

Well, it’s been just over a year since I got my bike mirror and it’s already broken. Other than this unexpected death, I was quite happy with this mirror. It was small and – as far as bike mirrors go – pretty discrete. The interesting thing is that I never realized how much I used it until my ride home yesterday. Although I did not use it for lane change scans, I did use it to gauge the amount of traffic behind me – which was apparently quite often.

I plan on replacing this with something built a little better. Let me know if you have any suggestions.

  1. If you haven’t replaced your mirror yet, wanted a “Beer View Mirror” and haven’t gotten around to buying one, they’re also available online for sale in a variety of places (although I obviously think mine are the best). If I don’t have the cap from your favorite brew, you can send me one or I’ll buy it and drink it if I can find it.

    • Thanks. I started to make my own, but was only able to get the cap and mirror. I can’t find the right wire gauge.

      I’ll have a look at your site. Thanks!

      • Richard,   I’m curious if you still have more of the “Bikes May Use Full Lane” pins? I can imagine that some Baltimore advocates would want to buy some, but I didn’t want to repost it without making sure that you hadn’t sold out.    Hope you’re enjoying the mirror.   Patrick
