The simple ball and socket joint on Roadie allows you to install it on the left side or, the right side of the handlebars. It takes just seconds to install -- just remove the existing road bar end plugs, insert the internal rubber socket and then simply pop the mirror into the socket. High quality lightweight polycarbonate convex mirror - SOLD AS SINGLE MIRROR. black.
Very nice looking and easy to install. Effective viewing although not perfectly clear as mirror is essentially made of non-breakable plastic. Small concern that mirror will inadvertently adjust (move around)due to bumps on road. So far so good except for one time after hitting major bump on road.
Follow-up to prior reviewRating:

Following up to the prior review written, I have now had a chance to put some miles in. This bar end mirror is quite helpful and I really like its location on the bike. My initial concern was that it might not hold its adjusted position while on the road due to bumps, however it has done quite well. Rarely, does a bump cause it to lose its setting.

The bar-end mirror works good, it is the only mirror that I have found that well work on a road bike.
Bar end mirrorRating:
A customer from Minneapolis Minnesota USA on 6/5/11
I'm a big believer in mirrors so bought a Roadie from the local bike shop for my new bike. It was not in the original packaging so I got it at a discount. The mirror didn't hold position. I returned it for one in the original packaging and the hold power was greatly improved with only a few adjustments on yesterday's century.
On this site I see that I can modify the tension by adding a bit of rubber band into the socket. I expect that will take care of the remaining issues.
I'm surprised I don't see more of these... They work well...
not as clear as other mirrors i have usedRating:
A customer from Washington, DC on 10/4/11
i am finding due to my age i have concluded that a mirror that clips to my glasses works better than the bar end mirror which is harder to see clearly.
i am sure it works better for those that have "'younger" eyes.

It is ok...nothing special, view is quite distorted...mirror is small...not very effective. I have kept my larger mirror on the bike. It is better than no mirror at all.
OK but wavy mirror surfaceRating:
RIder in Mass. on 6/6/12
Fits well, good shape, but the mirror itself is cheap and wavy. I've looked for the great barend mirrors you find in Italy or France but can't find them here in the good old USA!
Not so great with panniers, and I bump it all the timeRating:
A customer from Seattle, WA, USA on 8/11/12
This mirror is great for watching other cyclists behind you, but not for watching cars, because the focal length is short (I think). Also, if I have a pannier, it takes up a lot of the mirror, perhaps because my bars aren't very wide. Also, I have to adjust it ALL THE TIME, especially when I ride on chipseal or gravel. On a recent tour, I found myself relying on my ears much more than on this mirror.
The Ideal MirrorRating:

This is a replacement for a similar mirror. I simply couldn't live without one. They adjust easily and allow you to keep track of the traffic behind you. It is an invaluable safety feature. The mirror is small and aerodynamic as described.
