Zefal Cyclop Triple Adjustment Bar End Mounted Bike Mirror
« on: February 14, 2019, 04:01:51 pm »
I bought this after using a couple of cheapo Chinese mirrors and not being too impressed. I've used it on the commute for a week now and I'm mildly impressed.
Good points:
  • Great field of view with the large, cats eye-shaped mirror
  • Decent build quality
  • Easy to fit once assembled
  • 3-way adjustment (but see below)
Not so good:
  • Needs to be assembled (not that tricky, but still)
  • one of the fields of adjustment relies on friction between two planes and this cannot be tightened by screws like the other two planes. The friction simply isn't enough to stop it moving when going over bumps.
So, to overcome the lens movement I have applied duct tape to stop the movement. I'll see how I get on tomorrow.
Overall, a tenner well spent - so far.
