A great mirror for bikepacking
Perhaps I should stop doing so as it feeds my already well-developed FoMO (Fear Of Missing Out) but I still routinely check a number of bikepacking groups on Facebook. I guess it’s my way of remaining connected with our friends who are still out on the road while we’re back in Canada doing our best to settle down. One of the things that fairly regularly pops up in those groups are posts where people are looking for a suggestion for a bicycle mirror. Well, it just so happens that I have one that I can recommend.
Adjustable and robust!
I’ll lump our mirror selection into the dumb luck category as I pretty much just chose one at random from the countless that are available on Amazon. As it turned out though, the inexpensive mirror that we selected is a real winner. Not only is it super adjustable, it also easily folds out of the way when leaning the bike up against a wall, or when navigating between close vehicles or trees. I actually clipped it on a tree the other day when riding some tight single track and it folded out of the way without any intervention or damage. In addition to those benefits, it is also amazingly robust. We have our mirrors positioned so that they extend a bit beyond our handlebars and I have lost count of how many times we have dropped the bikes directly onto them. Result? No damage whatsoever! Shocking, but true.
If you’re looking for a strong and adjustable mirror for bikepacking, or cycling in general, this one gets five stars from me. If you choose to purchase it from this affiliate link, we’ll even get a few pennies from Amazon making it a win-win situation.
