Watch my back…

At least that was the idea…

I wanted to replace that small mirror on my helmet by an actual mirror on my handlebar so I bought myself these Mirrycle MTB Bar End Mountain Bicycle Mirror.

Unfortunately I cannot install those as my Trek 7.3  FX has something called Bontrager IsoZone handlebar.

Essentially what they did is put a weird kink at the end of the handlebars to put more padding in the grips.

As far as the padding is concerned, I cannot really see a difference in comfort compared to my previous bike but what it does mean for me right now is that I cannot put standard mirror OR bar ends on my bike (which I was considering adding as I had done in the past to my previous bike).

Now there are adapters to fit those IsoZone handlebars but none of them, as far as I know, permit the use of both mirrors and bar ends…

I will have to replace that handlebar as soon as I find a suitable replacement…

I’ll keep you posted on this…
