The connection to the handle bar was not tight enough and the angle of the mirror had to be continually adjudted to see the traffic.
Also, the mirror vibrated on the ride so the view of approaching cars was blurred.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your mirror. I'm sorry to read that the mirror moved when in use. I gather you thoroughly cleaned and removed any debris from the inside of your handlebars before mounting them, if this is the case and the diameter of the tube is within the limit (22.2mm) then there may be an issue with your particular mirror. If you believe them to be faulty and not fit for purpose, please feel free to return them with your receipt to your local Decathlon store.

Does this fit road bars?
Thank you for your question.
You will need to check the internal diameter of your bars as this item is compatible with 22.2mm tubing.

You can buy a similar one from a well known motoring shop,for quite a bit more.These mirrors are cheap but very well made. Have one on all my bikes. And find them to be good quality and give a great rear view. Mirror can be closed inward for getting into gates and the likes.I only had any mirrors break due to crashes. But then again a few have survived even that.Would highly recommend.
Really happy with this product and the whole online buying and delivery process
Fits in end of handlebar, steady wide view.
Excellent price, easy to fit and adjust and provides an excellent view of the road behind.
Excellent little add-on for any bike. Seems good quality and mirror is a good size too. It's so easy to fit - all you need is a screwdiver to tighten it into the handlebars. Mirror head can be reversed by loosening the screws and just flipping round, making it suitable for left or right hand fitting. Took me less than 5 minutes to turn the head round and fit it on my bike. My handlebars are slightly swept back, but even so it fits and adjusts easily. In use, it provides a good rear view and can still be adjusted for angle whilst out on a ride. I absolutely love this product and it is so much cheaper (and better quality) than others on the market. I'd highly recommend this for anyone looking for that extra bit of safety.
I'm not the most stable of riders.....looking to my rear makes me wobble but this has solved that problem!!! I have tried three in total from different shops and brands but found this one the most secure, stable (very little vibration) and has a gives a good view. Also very easy to fit, I didn't cut off the end of my handlebar rubber grips, I only needed to cut an "x" shape in the end and it pushed in easily. I feel more confident when riding now and would defo recommend them.
This is the 3rd time I have purchased the same mirror as I keep letting my cycle fall over. However I ordered 2 mirrors this time so that I would have a spare if it happens again. Fantastic mirror, reasonably priced. Gives great view of traffic behind ... just like in a car.
