Mirrors

I sell Cycle Star bicycle mirrors from Busch & Müller that mount on your handlebar. The mounting system includes two styles of attachment. One allows the mount to be inserted into the end of the handlebar and the other wraps around the bar, like a hose clamp. All hardware is included, see the photo below. The slightly convex mirror gives you a wide view of the road behind. All mirrors offer a wide range of adjustment. There is a ball joint at both ends of the arm, and the base can pivot on the mount. Many cyclists need the longer are version (901). Others will prefer one of the shorter versions (901/1) since the shorter arm will vibrate less on rough roads and the image in the mirror will be a bit more stable. And if you're a true minimalist, the 901/2 will be ideal. I use the 901/2 on my road bike, it's perfect at the end of a drop bar, unless you use bar-end shifters, of course.

The various "901" Cycle Star mirrors are convex and 55mm in diameter. New for 2013, we have a larger mirror available. The Cycle Star 80 903 series mirrors use the same mounting system and arm options, but the mirror is about 81mm in diameter; also convex.

The curve or radius of the new 903 mirror is a bit less than the radius of the 901. In other words, while the 903 is still a convex mirror, it's slightly less convex than the 901. With the 903 series, you see a wider field of view, and, the size of the image is larger.

Which should you buy?

Well shucks, I dunno! I have the 901/2 on my own bike, and I like it a lot. I can easily see if an approaching car is far enough to the left not to hit me. But perhaps you'd prefer a larger image of the car approaching. Hard for me to say. I don't think I'll be changing to the 903. I like the minimalist look of the 901/2 on my bike.

 


901 & 903

The Cycle Star 901 handlebar mirror from Busch&Müller either plugs into the end of your handlebar, or wraps around the bar, whichever you prefer. The 5.5 " gently curved arm is best for positioning the mirror well to the side or high above the handlebar. The mirror comes complete with the hardware pictured below.

901/1 & 903/1

The Cycle Star 901/1 from Busch&Mueller either plugs into the end of your handlebar, or wraps around the bar, whichever you prefer.

901/2 & 903/2

The 901/2 and 903/2 plug into the end of a handlebar. On my road bike, a Rivendell Rambouillet, I don't have bar end shifters, so the bar end is free for a mirror. I use the 901/2. It's perfect for me.

901/3 & 903/3

The Cycle Star 901/3 from Busch&Muller either plugs into the end of your handlebar, or wraps around the bar, whichever you prefer. The 2" curved arm is best for positioning the mirror to the side of or below the end of a drop style road handlebar, or on the end of a straight mountain bike handlebar. The mirror comes complete with the hardware pictured below.

Extra Mounting Hardware

This is the mounting hardware included with each Cycle Star mirror except for the 901/2 and 903/2, which include just the section to insert into the bar end. One mount (on the left) inserts into the end of the handlebar. The other (on the right) wraps around the bar.

I also have the mounting hardware available separately, in case you would like to easily move one mirror between two or more bikes: $ 6.18

This is also helpful if you first set up the mirror with one mount, and then for whatever reason want to change the mount to the other style, but in the mean time, you've misplaced the other mount.
