– I’ve never used bar end mirrors, but don’t like the idea of low-mount mirrors. I want the mirrors to be higher up because: a) I lane split in traffic so don’t want to add width at the handlebar level; b) I prefer the mirrors to be close to eye level so it’s easier to take quick glances.
– I’m fairly trim so I just tuck in my elbows or lean the head out slightly for a better angle to see behind. I’d try mirror stem extenders if I needed the mirrors to be farther out.
– Convex mirrors works well during the day. It makes me a little lazy with head check. At night it’s harder to distinguish the many points of lights in a convex mirrors.
