Last year I got into biking and purchased a Marin used police bike. I hadn’t ridden a bike in years but I decided to add another way to get a workout besides using my weights in my workout shed. My wife also purchased a bike at the same time so we can now go out on bike rides together.
After my first bike ride, I realized really quickly that I needed to be able to see cars coming up behind me for safety’s sake. So what would I do for a bike mirror? I know that you can purchase a mirror that attaches to your bike helmet but most of them attach to your bike’s handles.
I really didn’t want one that stayed in place and was really looking for more of a portable/removable mirror. So, I decided to go with the Bell SmartView 300 Bike Mirror. At first, I bought one for my bike and my wife would borrow it when she wanted to go for a bike ride. But, since we were going on bike rides together, I needed to buy another one for her bike.
That was perfectly fine though because they go for short money, roughly $10, for a bike mirror that attaches using Velcro. You can check out my video YouTube review below:
As you can see from the video, it works really well for seeing anything behind you and it’s portable! That was definitely the key feature for me. You can check out the features of this bike mirror below:
