Hi everyone,

Does any of you have tried using those bar end mirrors turned down?
Do they give an acceptable (I will not dare saying good...) rear vision? Do the arms block the vision?

Thanks for your inputs guys.

I have one on my electric pushbike.

Not ideal, I prefer to get my eyeball closer to the mirror, so I can alter the view by moving my head. Not practical on my pushbike.

I tried it once. I went back to having them mounted the conventional way.
You need to move your head too far to look at them. You can't see anything when you use panniers.

I have used bar end mirrors in that fashion on some bikes with good results. If your bars are fairly high and/or wide, it's fine. I would suspect on stock GRiSO bars it would be annoying.

I have Stelvio bars and also have a set of bar end mirrors on the shelf. I'll give it a try.

I have (up-turned) bar end mirrors on my GRiSO 1100. Cheap mirrors from fleabay. Work fine for me.

(I think the 1100 bars are wider than the 1200, isn't it?)
