Koso mirrors - better view, look sharp
I got tired of the rotten view from the lollipop mirrors and went looking for something better. Style counted a lot, given that the view had to be good.
I ended up buying some Koso mirrors from Ebay, about $35 with shipping. The wider view helps a LOT, and they look great. Slight blue tint on the glass. The mirror housings are ABS, but you can't tell by looking and they're solid and tight. Stems are metal, and include adapters for use on nearly any cycle. They're very adjustable - you can go low and wide, or high and narrow as you like. They're available in chrome too if black ain't your thing. Check it out...
Here's a side-by-side comparison of the view compared to stock mirrors.
Most you will find don't have them, but I tried a set with yellow LEDs in the front housing. I hooked them up to my running lights for extra frontal visibility. They're brighter than I thought, glad to have the extra presence. I'll edit this post if I can get good lighted shots at dusk or dark.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
