Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

... your mate has one best bet is trying his on your bike. I'm belatedly responding to this post from r2. There were questions (above) about whether 'Sprintech' mirrors can be caught on our anatomy at various times and in various places. I can only speak for myself, and for how my bikes are set-up. ...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

I use "Mirrycle" but I have the bar end version that's also for mountain bikes.

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

... their 'bars. Even so I can understand Cugel's logic. My 'bars are all 420mm centre-to-centre - as Cugel says, wider are better for use of '"Sprintech" mirrors than narrow 'bars. One of my bikes does have compact bars. I have a frame to rebuild a bike on - and I'll get compact bars for ...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

I'm just doing an update on my last post -if anyone's interested. I continue to find them a boon. They don't work a miracle, they don't give you a perfect view - how could they considering their size and location - but they make a good attempt. I wouldn't be without mine. I finally fit them on my '...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

Right then, I bought the 'Sprintech's from SJS - friendly and quick service incidentally :D :D . The mirrors fit into the bar ends and are amazingly easy to fit. I've done e couple of rides with them - nothing impressive, longest was just ...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

... how your leg stroke goes as you pedal. Some lads have sticky-out knees whilst others piston away in a more leg-linear fashion. In all events, if a Sprintech mirror does get knocked out of alignment, it can be put back in a trice; and when on the move, if necessary. A human hand can easily move ...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

I have a Zefal Cyclops on the offside. Used to use a Sprintech on the nearside as well but could never get it to stay put, and it was very easily scratched so I ditched it. I'm surprised it wouldn't stay put. Do you mean it didn't fit in the handlebar ...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

My sprintech has never hit my knee on the tandem even on tight turns. It has the advantage over other mirrors I looked at of not increasing the width of the bike. I want a mirror for our thorn with ergo grips but the sprintech won’t fit, which is a shame because we can’t afford to make that any wider.

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

John
No I haven't tried one but they seems to project rearward about the same as a bar end gear lever which I have tried and don't like for that reason,however I could be wrong in that assumption.

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

FWIW,I don't like the look of the Springtech drop bar mirror as it seems to project too much rearward and is a potential knee knocker in tight manoeuvres etc. Have you tried them John? That is something that did occur to me and I asked that question earlier on the thread. There's only been one repl...

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

The Mirrycycle - best mirror of all....but you need non-aero brake levers. (Though I'm sure Brucey could bodge some aero levers to fit!)

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

Is there any fix which makes it possible to use both a bar-end mirror and bar-end shifters?

Re: 'Sprintech' rear view cycle mirrors.

In our case it's my stoker who has the mirror and she keeps me informed on what is going (or rather coming) on and advises me when it's safe to pull out for example. Ours re the Blackburn / Rhode Gear oval ones that strap onto the brake hood. I once tried a helmet mirror but couldn't really focus cl...
