I accidentally dropped and lost the mounting nut and haven't been to the hardware store yet to get a replacement. But it looks like it'll work just fine.
The installation was simple and it looks good and provides the needed rear-view. Will be very helpful. The mirror face itself is not "rigid and flat". It seems to be simply made of plastic with a reflective coating and for that reason, the image is wavy & distorted. It functions to allow a view of what is behind me while biking, I just wish it was a less-blurry view.
Having a hard time figuring out the instructions for installing the mirror???
I love the mirror I bought from Zizzo. I began using mirrors years ago when I was doing some LONG rides, and I can't ride without one now. This one gives me a perfect view of what's coming behind me when I have it at about a 35- to 40-degree angle, but that's just what works for me. I used a reamer to open up the hole at the end of the grip without removing the entire end, but, again, that was my preference to do it this way. It worked great for me! I've been very pleased with everything I've bought from Zizzo, including TWO different bike models, the battery-powered pump, and the mirror.
It's a great help when I'm riding at the side of the road. I can see the car approaching and making my riding secured.
Works as intended.
Mirror is good. Does what I expected it to do.
Installed as expected. Have not ridden since installation.
Love the bike. Local bike shop likes it also.
Easy to instal, shakes to much, but it helps
It was very difficult to mount the mirror inside the end of the handle-bar.
Mirror vibrates. Sorry that I ruined my handle bar cover. Mirror is of no use Would not recommend
I am very happy with my Forte bicycle, and the other accessories from ZiZZO, but I did not end up using the mirror that I ordered. It is designed to fit on the end of the handle bar, but the Forte handle bar grip did not seem to accommodate this mirror. I didn’t want to cut the end off of the grip to try to install it. It may work well on other ZIZZO model bike grips, but I decided to purchase a different type of mirror that installs on the handle bar at the inside of the grip about 5 inches from the end that has an arm that sticks out about 5 inches near the end of the grip. The new mirror is much higher quality and several times more expensive, but worth it. When the bike rolls over cracks in pavement there is vibration of the handle bar, and I believe that a sturdy and well attached mirror is required. I like quality and a $10 mirror just didn’t cut it for me. I think having I quality mirror is a very important accessory to have on a bike as it in helpful to know what is coming up behind you.
This is really an update on an earlier review I did where my biggest issue was a lot of vibration. My mediation effort on this is that I took a pipe cleaner (my wife has these for her crafts) and wound it around the plastic stem connecting the mirror to the handlebars. I had hoped it would act as a vibration dampener and it most definitely did help. This "fix" was to simply wind the pipe cleaner around the stem covering as much of the spring as possible. It was a 2 minute fix that noticeably helped the vibration.
Huge amount of vibration. I have used "Mirror Cycle" ( picture https://www.icebike.org/what-you-need-to-know-about-cycling-mirrors/) and this seems to have much less vibration. I am working on some home-made vibration dampeners. The problems I see are primarily twofold: 1. The step connecting the mirror to the handlebars needs to better dampen vibration. 2. The mirror is a "stuff looks closer than it really is" type with a very good wide angle field of vision but, unfortunately, this exacerbates vibration. It is "OK" on newly surfaced pavement but that is extremely rare in Indianapolis Indiana an most of our residential streets in the city center that are decent for bicycling traffic wise are s shambles on the surface level.
