Sick! Always good to have a mirror. I am always watching what comes up behind me and if someone is that close, I am going to try and bail somewhere, knowing they are up to no good. I haven’t had any issues of any cars/trucks in many months. I am just really trying to avoid cars and take roads that are good for me and my safety. Don’t mind if the ride is longer. I just don’t trust anyone anymore at all. Texting and hate are no doubt a big problem. Wear a mirror and monitor everyone around you at all times and always have a bailout plan if at all possible.
Had been considering either one of those brake-hood or a dropbar-end mirror — how stable is the one you’ve got?
I’ve had those ones that velcro around the end of a flat handlebar, which drooped or wobbled so much it was impossible to figure out what you were looking at; i’d be more interested in something that was actually stable enough to stay where i put it.
I have one installed in the end of my flat handlebars–it’s very stable. I’m surprised how much it’s helped my comfort level in relatively heavy or fast traffic (whether that increased comfort is merely illusory, I don’t know…).
