Equipment and On Road Behaviour, Laws and Rules. Cycling Promotion and Advocacy
Personally, I tried a glasses-mounted mirror many years ago. I couldn't handle the one-eyed peering (loss of binocular vision for distance judgement, and the squinting bothered me I think) and ditched it. I got a Mirrycle drop-bar mirror soon after and have always loved it and similar replacements - distance judgement (for me) is very good.
As I said, just my experience. They certainly work for others.
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.
I know what Il Padrone means. On the weekend I purchased a mirror designed to be helmet mounted. I tried it out on this morning's commute. Maybe it's because I'm not accustomed to it yet, but it's a little freaky, a little small for my liking and so far I much prefer the bike-mounted Zefal spy mirror. I decided to experiment with the helmet mirror because I have too many bikes now (hahaha yeah right) and the Zefal is not exactly portable. Epic fail, and it's glued on with Liquid Nails as the double sided tape failed. Glad I have a second helmet.
