    I'm in need of some new mirrors.
    I bought some cheap chinese crap ones off ebay about a year or so ago, but the chrome (if you can call it that!) has turned to shit.
    What mirrors do you have/recommend? I want chrome.
    the ones i have are Scythe II knock offs. I don't mind the look, and the functionality is fine.
    Had a look on Meancycles site, and only found 2 that did anything for me. The Odins, https://www.meancycles.com/store/parts/view.cfm?partID=216372 and the Razorblades https://www.meancycles.com/store/parts/view.cfm?partID=220904. Both basically the same mirror just with a different stem. The razorblades pretty much look like the Scythes anyway.
    I want to see what else is out there! Nowhere near me (that I know of!) actually carries this stuff to go and have a look at!

    Thanks. I seriously just bought some yesterday. Ended up just going for the same ones I had. They're cheap shit, but I like the style the best. They last about a year before they start to turn to shit, and I can literally buy 8 sets before I've spent the same money as the better quality ones.
    I must have looked at hundreds of styles and most just don't do it for me.
