    Mirror options

    I track my Atom SRA (Atom 3) and I find it challenging to see people who are directly behind me. Also mirror adjustment is tricky - mirrors get easily knocked out of position.

    Anybody tried different mirror setups that you like more?

    Found this in thread archive - curious for feedback Services

    Thanks
    Aleks

    I went to these last year. You can buy them on Ebay_> Emgo Universal Rectangluar Mirror GP Deluxe Long Stem Black 130mm x 85mm 10mm T | eBays-l500.jpg

    Bolt right on..no mods necessary..MUCH larger sight picture,very adjustable and stay put once you have them adjusted. Plus,they are very inexpensive if you bust one…

    I just installed these and they are GREAT! Completely eliminated the need for my Autobahn mirrors.

    I got them, installed one, and realized that field of view is less than on one that came with Atom 3 SRA so I will probably be going back or trying another one. Ones that came stock are convex thus give you wider field of view vs this one appears flat. This observation appears contrary to MadMaxAtom's - perhaps your mirrors were different from mine to start with...

    On the positive note - they do seem a lot sturdier so won't get knocked out as easy...

    Do you have Atom 2 or 3? See my prior post - do you get wider field of view than your current mirrors?

    Can you post some pics of them installed - especially details of how they attach to current mount?

    Thank you

    I don't use convex mirrors..don't care for the distorted view. My original mirrors were straight glass and small. You can buy larger convex mirrors reasonably priced. I'm not paying more than $30 for a pair of mirrors…

    They mount the same as the factory mirrors, at least they do on my AA3. The arms are longer so they clear the windshield better, if you have one of those, so you can actually see your passenger-side mirror.

    Is that another mirror behind the front tire?
