Mirror for drop handlebars required

For donkey's years I used a Mirrycle (one of the best bits of kit I have
ever had) but I've now upgraded to these new-fangled Shimano dual contol
lever thingys to which the Mirrycle cannot be fitted.

I have tried the Blackburn Road Mirror but find the velcro attachment
insecure and uncomfortable on the hand. Does anyone know of a
straightforward "adjustable mirror on a stick" which can be clamped directly
to drop handlebars?

TIA.

I like the B&M Cyclestar mirror, though I'm not using drop handlebars, more
like a drop bike. ;)

Like the previous poster I also use a B & M Cyclestar on drop bars.Fits into
the end of the drops with a ball and socket joint.No problems at
all,wouldn't be without it.

Have a look here.

Busch and Muller - mine replaces the bar end plug. If you're using panniers
the one on a stalk may be better.
