Any suggestions for a mirror for a Strada? How about placement location?

Thanks

John,

I installed a full length mirror in my garage for my Tour Easy. Had to take it away though, 'cause
she spent too much time preening. I was always late for group rides.

John,

The Mt. Mirrcycle mirror has served me well on 5 different bents. You can adapt a Minoura clamp,
like used on their Space Bar, to hold the Mirrcycle unit anywhere on your bars you want it.
Otherwise, it's a bar-end installation, and without seeing how your bars are set-up in the Strada, I
cannot really tell you how it will work there for knee clearance, etc.

On a helmet has always worked for me. As for type, I prefer Bike Peddler 'Take A Look' or CycleAware

I have been using Fahrrad-Spiegle USS Mirror (from Hostel Shoppe) on my Vision. The short extension
arm ball joint got too loose pretty quickly, but it is possible to use only the remaining short arm.
The tightness of the ball joint in the mirror can be adjusted, so it can last for years.

Good Day John, On my Corsa handlebar end, I use a Mirror Cycle mirror without the mirror
extension/riser as riser makes grip somewhat uncomfortable. View, and grip, fine.

I like the Evolution mirror (at the link Ken listed above) I've got on my Strada. The EvoLite is
apparently new and looks like it would also be a good choice.

The Strada (you lucky dog) has the same bar arrangement as my Giro. This is the one I use (Quote from Hostel Shoppe's catalog):


"B&M Cyclestar Mirror
Made in Germany, this mirror is our new favorite. It's extremely durable design also includes multiple mounting devices, making it excellent for almost any OSS or USS application. High quality mirror does not distort images. Black.

Manufacturer: B&M

Product Notes:
Long Stalk (6") - fits almost everything!
Short Stalk (3") - great for Bacchetta bars and perfect for RANS tandem stoker: mount it to the captain's seat. $22"

It's a bit on the smaller side, but works well enough.

The B&M mirror was suggested for my socked TE. Has anyone tried this. If so How was it mounted?

Chuck Harris helmet or eyeglass mirror. Chuck sez, "Objects in the mirror are exactly as
they appear."

I use the same mirror but it is attached to a cut down bar end onto my USS vision. this is because
if it was on the bar end it would be behind my hand.
