Helmet mirrors are very useful for nearsighted people with glasses.  I use
my mirror to determine what's going to affect my travels in the next ten or
fifteen seconds.  I don't worry about absolute accuracy, I just want the big
picture.  If I want that information without a mirror, I have to twist my
body and head around so that I can look at the road behind me through my
glasses.  To do this correctly I have to take my left hand off the bars,
disorient myself, and risk wobbling around a lot.  It's dangerous.  With the
mirror, it's just a glance up and to the left for a second or two.  Mirrors
aren't for everyone, but for some of us they're wonderful.  I use a mirror
despite the bad design that makes the plastic ones ridiculously breakable.
I hope that someone develops a flexible, springy mirror mount.  It seems an
enormously obvious idea.
