I first put one on my Trek hybrid and was very pleased,
so much that I bought a second one for my road bike.
Being a truck driver I tend to place a lot of importance on mirrors.
The quality of the glass, lack of distortion, and steadiness are very important to me.
This mirror offers all of that, and better than any other I've tried.
On the straight handbars it is located great, and sits out from the end of the bar grip enough that my hands don't interfere.
I didn't think I''d like it on the road bike because of the location the mirror would end up in.
I see many road bikes with the smaller streamlined mirrors, so I bought one of those but didn't like how small the mirror was.
It made it difficult to really see what was coming up behind you, how close it actually was, and how fast it was coming.
So I bought a second mirror that was round and bigger, and set out to the side of the handlebar end, only to have that one get in the way of my hands when down in the drop portion of the bar.
Out of desperation I took this mirror off my hybrid because I needed something for a ride that day, and it works great.
When I'm grabbing the end of the bar in the drops my forearm may block the mirror just a bit, but if I'm keeping my elbows in tight it's ok.
Nice size allows me to see what is coming and how fast, how far behind me it is. Remains stable for a good clear view.
Easy to mount, comes with 2 sizes of rubber knurled inserts. You choose which size best fits the inside of your bar end, tighten it up a little before inserting so that it slides in fully but offers a little resistance, and once pushed all the way in just rotate it by hand to tighten completely.
You do need to make sure you tighten it completely, or it will shake around when you are on bumpy roads and possibly fall out.
I noticed several negative reviews that mention vibration and falling out. It needs to be tightened completely or that will happen.
I haven't had some of the issues with the glass like others have. However, the rubber stops stripped out the first time I removed the mirror from my handlebars. I put in the larger stops and tried them instead; that just got one of the stops stuck in my bars (that was a lot of fun to remove...)
The mirror sat in my parts box for several months as it was completely useless then. I finally figured out a way to use it, though. I found a nut and washer that fit the end and attached them on over the stops. Tighten the screw down until the stops are just barely thicker than the handlebar and shove it in. This isn't perfect; I'm only using it on a road bike as I think the rough terrain I take a mountain bike on would cause the mirror to shake out.
Another problem is with the adjustment screw (that keeps the mirror from turning). It's a regular screw head. why not a allen wrench head or at least a Phillips head?
Bottom line - there are cheaper mirrors that are easier to install and use.
the mirror was awkward to install, but tolerable. Because it is heavey it requires a some frequent adjustment because going over bumps it tends to go out of adjustment (glass is also heavey). It broke within a couple weeks when I was carrying the bike indoors for storage I hit the wall, not very hard, and it cracked. My sprintech lasted over a decade and 30,000 miles.
