Buyer's Guide: Bike Mirror

How To Choose The Right Bike Mirror For Your Bike

Bike mirrors enable you to view the world around you just like you do on your motorcycle. They act like side or blind spots to let you view what's behind you without actually getting squinted at it. Most bikers swear by having them attached to their bike. When you've got them attached, you'll have a much wider field of vision all over you without having to lift or pull your head.

There are many different kinds of bike mirrors available in the market today. If you're more into cycling, you'll definitely need to get yourself a good rearview mirror that lets you view your surroundings when you're on your way to work, racing, or just hanging out with friends. Many modern bicycles come with built-in mounts as well. If yours doesn't have one, you can always go shop for one separately. You might be surprised to know that there are many online stores where you can buy these necessary equipments for your biking needs as well.

The first kind of bike mirror you should look out for is the standard convex mirror. These are typically made from high-quality plastic and have been specifically designed for use on a bike. Although they're relatively inexpensive, there's no reason why you shouldn't invest in them. They'll last for quite some time as long as you take good care of them.

Another kind you should consider getting is the reflective bike mirrors. These reflectors are perfect for when you need to ride at night and are biking in poor weather. You can also adjust its height so that you can see better under helmets and other items. Most of these types of bike mirrors require a certain type of mount. If you're not sure how to install it, consult a professional to help you out.

Bike mirrors which are installed on the right side are commonly referred to as bicycle mirrors. These kinds of units enable you to see vehicles coming from both the right side and left side. Mounting it on the right side makes it possible for you to see vehicles coming from the left side. There are no issues with installing them on the left side, provided you have the space.

The three different kinds of bike mirrors currently available are available in three different styles as well: the fixed ones, the fully-adjustable, and the fully-moderately-adjustable ones. Fixed ones basically remain the same; you can't change its elevation or angle. Full-adjustable and fully-moderately-adjustable units feature an aluminum frame which can be easily swiveled left and right. In addition to the frame, there are also a couple of levers and a thumbwheel attached to the top of the unit.

Full-adjustable ones basically allow you to make any adjustments that you need, even up to tilting the entire bicycle's seat to a specific angle. They're more complex and more expensive compared to the other two kinds of units. Fully-adjustable mirrors, however, are also easier to mount since you won't need to drill holes in your wall or put up brackets and screws. Mounting these mirrors on aluminum mounts is relatively simple, given that they can often come with built-in adapters. However, many people prefer the look and feel of fully-adjustable bike mirrors over those that are simply fixed-to-the-wall.

Aluminum handlebar mirrors are one of the most popular models among cycling enthusiasts. However, they can be quite expensive compared to the other types of models. You can reduce this additional cost by mounting it on a sturdy, quality mount. It's also a good idea to consider the mounting system so you'll know that your new bicycle mount will provide optimum protection for your bike mirrors.
