Electric Bike Essential Accessories | Testing Out Mirrors


Hi, it's Alana here with sixthreezero. Today, we are testing out a new accessory. But before we do that, I wanted to tell you about our e-bike giveaway. So if you haven't heard, we're giving away an electric bike this week, and all you have to do is download our new app. The link is in the bio, and log two miles with the app. It doesn't have to be consecutive just two miles total by next Friday, March 26th. You have through Friday up until 1159 Pacific standard time. And if you do that, you'll be automatically entered to win. And we'll announce the winner here, also on Instagram, Facebook. It's an easy way to potentially win an e-bike.


Last week, we went on a bike ride with one of our sixthreezero pedalers, Sully. And she recommended this mirror set, which we found on Amazon. It's $17, and it comes with two mirrors. So we are going to test it out on the bike. She loved the mirrors, so I'm sure that we are going to love them too. Let's see how it works out. So which goes on which side? I guess you can turn it in. Okay. It didn't come with instructions, but it seems pretty intuitive, so I'm just going to wing it. It's possible that the instructions are online, but I don't think I need them. Go with this first. So screwing the mirror on first, and you can screw this bolt to meet this attachment so that the mirror is facing the direction you want it to be. Right to tighty left to loosy. I have to remind myself every time.


It fits perfectly around the handlebar. I'll have to see how it looks when I'm on the bike. I might need to adjust it a little more. You just see how it looks. Okay. So I've got the left mirror on. For now, it looks fine. I might want to scoot it out a little more. I'm going to see how it is once I have both on and I'm out on the street. But now, let's get the right mirror on. Okay. Got them both on. They're at different points on the handlebar, so I'm just going to see which one I like more, and then adjust the other mirror to match that one. But as you can see, the mirror itself is pretty adjustable, like a car side view mirror, so that's pretty neat. And I can already tell that I am going to find this very helpful. So let's get out on the street. I'm going to grab my helmet, and we'll test these out.


All right. That was our short one-mile test ride. And I have to say that I really like them. After a few bumps, they did wobble a bit, but I think that's my fault because I just tighten the screw with my hands. I think if I go in with a wrench and really tighten it, I won't have that issue because the right one barely moved at all. The left one was wobbling a bit. But other than that, I really liked having the mirrors along on the right, especially when we got to the busy street on Santa Monica. I really liked just being able to see the traffic behind me if I need to. I've been cut off before, and it's scary. So I really just like having this added piece of mind, being able to see the oncoming cars and even bikes that are behind me.


So for $17, I think that's a really great addition to your bike. The style is pretty neat. Like Sully said in her video, it's like that vintage style that looks perfect with a cruiser. It's a clean minimal look. So pretty neat. I would recommend these. So if you're interested, the links are in our description below. And if you saw, I vlogged the ride with our sixthreezero pedaling apps. And like I mentioned at the beginning of the video, don't forget that you can download the app, log two miles with the app, and you'll be entered to win an e-bike. So a great, easy, and fun way to potentially win an e-bike. So good luck with that. Thanks for riding along with us. If you have any accessories that you want us to test out and give you our feedback on, be sure to drop them in the comments below. Thanks for watching. It's your journey, your experience.
