Bell Bike Helmet Mirror
This mirror might be the best "investment" of any cycling related equipment I own. Being able to see traffic and who is drafting is absolutely essential on a ride. And, unless you're able to look upside down under your arm as the pros do (I cannot!) this mirror is the way to go. It's also better than handlebar mounted mirrors because you can see a larger area just by turning your head.
It could be better if it were a bit sturdier so that it would not vibrate as much and go out of adjustment in a strong wind, but for the money, it's excellent.

As advertised. Good product.
I stopped using a rear view mirror years ago. Thought it made me look less pro and more rookie. A lot of guys I ride with use various rear view mirrors & urged me to get one. Older now, more sensible & less egotistical, I got this one. It serves the purpose well. The stem that holds the mirror is a bit wiggly but it does what it's supposed to and I really like seeing what's coming up behind me on the road; if I had to dodge something, I could! Sensible, practical, safe. . . for ALL riders of any age or style.

Easy to find in the store . I wish it had an extra mirror in the package.would pay a little more. Sometimes the mirror comes off.

This mirror takes a little getting used to, and can be frequently out of whack and needing some fine adjustment each time you put your helmet on, as it protrudes from the front visor and can bump into things when you put on or remove your helmet. It attaches quite easily, but the attachment method (double-stick foam tape) isn't ideal, and it takes some fooling with to get it flush with the helmet surface and usable for the wearer. It is one of those accessories that takes some getting used to, to make it work correctly. I've been told that you'll either love it or hate it. I'm still trying to love it.

It's basic and almost funtional
The short arm keeps it close to your eyeball, a bit distracting, but I guess it helps widen the angle. It vibrates at times, but for what I paid, it's okay. I wouldn't trust it to cut out into the lane or turn.

Package needs instructions
Could not figure out how to put it on the helment where it worked properly. This one's going back!

Save your money
Worthless, the mounting arm is so weak that the mirror shakes too much to see anything

not good for every helmet.
I found it locked out a large part of my vision.and seemed easy to break.if you can't find a flat spot to install, it won't stay on.

Mirror snapped off on second use.
It was difficult to find a place on the helmet to stick on the base and have it in the right position. The two moving pivots were difficult to adjust. The mirror is small and has a very small field of vision. I was always trying to readust it. Finally, while trying to adjust the mirror, it snapped off because it was hard to tell when it was at the adjustable limit, being so hard to turn it.
