Attention road cyclists:
Do you find your lower/upper back and neck getting stiff and sore during or after a long ride?
I do, and I feel it results from being hunched over on a road bike frame while looking straight ahead. I find the pain can be lessened by occasionally angling my head to look
straight at my feet, thus straightening my neck and spine.
I propose a durable, anti-fog, adjustable mirror be fixed to the front of the handle bars and angled such that a rider can comfortably look down at the mirror and yet clearly see the road ahead reflected in the mirror.
- Curve the mirror slightly convex to create a huge field of peripheral vision.
- Add an OSD (on screen display) layer to the mirror that could display GPS data, speed, time, distance, etc.
Thank you for reading.

||Yeah, I think it would take some getting used to...but so do clipless pedals, and they can cause accidents too.
