PostSubject: New Mirrors, big or small - you decide!   New Mirrors, big or small - you decide! Icon_minitimeFri Jul 19, 2013 3:55 pm

I am lucky to travel to our LA office quite regularly - so now buy stuff on ebay.com and get it shipped there so I can pick it up, pack it in the suitcase and bring it home much cheaper than paying for shipping (and duty etc) or buying the same stuff here.

So I ordered 2 sets of mirrors and will let anyone on here have the set I don't use at the price I paid for them... $15 (£10) for the http://www.ebay.com/itm/330952240542?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 ones and $20 (£13) for the http://www.ebay.com/itm/390621248002?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648 ones 

So here's two images of the different styles - I'm leaning towards the mini mirrors as they just look cleaner - but I don't think I will be able to see much out of them!

Oh, as you can see I also need some new control extenders as my feet don't reach the pedals yet...

Put your votes in for mini mirrors or chrome mirrors (the bigger ones) and let me know if you'd like either of them. Whichever I don't use will be offered up here after!

Thanks guys!

My personal preference would be for the smaller ones.  If you don't use them then let me know and I'll take them off your hands at that price.

Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned the option to buy - it might make people give me the wrong answers so they can get the ones they really like! Doh!

I wouldn't do that to you mate.  I do genuinely think the smaller ones look better.

I have now just took a 2nd set of small mirrors off my bike due to visibility. I like the look of small mirrors but they are shit as a functional item.

A very good point Dave.  We should never compromise safety for the sake of style

Yeah, good point Dave, I think I might have to test ride them as they are now to see if they are usable or not...

If you decide you don't want the bigger ones, I would like to buy them from you.

 Do you not think it looks like it's made up of left over parts? ie black bits hiding the adjustment things, whereas the right one is flowing and sleek.

Well, despite the poor view offered by the smaller ones they are definitely better looking so they are now permanent. There for the big ones are now available for £13 plus a couple of quid for postage.

First to say yes gets 'em...
