Any one use mirrors on their gravel bike and if so what. I road with a buddy a few weeks ago on a course that had much more traffic and pavement mixed in than I normally do and it got me thinking especially on the pavement connectors that one might be nice to have.

I always ride with a mirror and can honestly say that it has saved me from what could have been some rather nasty incidents. I do not trust drivers around here and even on gravel it has allowed me to keep tabs on dogs that have chased me, and once a bear that I had to keep an eye on as I rode away from it. I use drop bar end mirrors that just plug into your bar end.

I usually always use a mirror.  Either one attached to my helmet which is a larger diameter touring type mirror or one attached to the left handlebar  I frequently use the mirror to keep up on what's going on "back there" but especially when I come to a turn so as to avoid being cut off.   I, also, believe in being very visible for automobile drivers.

I use a Third Eye glasses mirror, which took a while to get the hang of. At first I used it just for road riding and got it because I could just take it off for gravel riding. But now that I’m accustomed to it I feel at a disadvantage without it and use it most of the time.

Just what Grenhil says.....Third Eye Mirror that attaches to glasses or sunglasses. I’ve been using one for 10 years and wouldn’t Road, Gravel or MTB without it!
