    I have the fab Cateye 'Racer' mirror that goes into a barend. I'm not sure it'll work with buttefly bars.
    It's an uphill climb to the bottom

    your right, bar end mirrrors are no good for my butterfly bars, and i do not like those helmet mirrors as they make you look like a real helmet,if you know what i mean ?

    Erm the link was only to give you the information and pictures - you can buy them over here. You can get them for £13 if you go to the right place (the link to the Google search results was a hint).

    The idea of a rear view mirror is a good but I never quite got the hang of using one. To be effective I've found they need to be sticking out a bit, making them vulnerable to being knocked out of alignment or broken. Also I don't fiind it intuitive to use one as I do in a car. I prefer a quick turn of the head to look behind.

    'I do not believe in the three-speed gear at all', the sergeant was saying. 'It is a newfangled instrument, it crucificies the legs, the half of the accidents are due to it.' (From 'The Third Policeman')
