    Try the mountain miracle mirror. Pretty solid, lasts.

        Don't know about mirrycles on ebikes, but everyone that I've seen on regular bikes has snapped off at the arm. I like the Third Eye bar end mirrors better. They swing out of the way when not in use and they have a good field of vision in use

          I have them on 4 bikes and they never snapped off. But I now turn them in to make getting into side garage door easier. Toughest mirror ever. You must be brutal. Or got a bad mirror.

        I bought one of these helmet mirrors (https://hubbubonline.com/?page_id=725) and I like it quite a bit. My helmet has a visor which made installation a little tricky but once I got it on right and then got used to looking into it I found I don't want to ride without it.

          Hello and thank you for the comments, I have purchased a helmet mounted piece and two handlebar mounted mirrors, If eithr work well I will be happy. I initialy thought the miracle but due to haveing to cut the end of the handlegrip put me off. My bike may have wires inside the handlebars...its a Wisper 705. I will keep you posted when my mirrors arrive

            I have been using the mtn miracle mirror- and have to say I am very pleased with the durability- I use the bike for road and off road. I do have it a little loose so that it will "slip" over time but when I wreck off road it allows it to pivot some and after several wrecks that I thought would have broken it for sure it is still going strong. I could never get used to a helmet mirror just felt awkward. good luck

              Well I have had two mounted on handlebar mirrors for 3 weeks and they do the job. I have found if you tuck your elbows in when viewing you get an excellent view. I also tried a hemet mirror and altho it works it is not as good, on dull days its hard to read and its always THERE! even altho you get use to it. I rate the handlebar pieces 9 outa 10 and the helmet job 7 outa 10
              Either are better than nothing
