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.

Not yet Alice, I'm really sorry we don't have chip and pin faiiclties. We've got your details and as soon as they're on sale we'll let you know. Cheers for being a keen bean and apologies that it's taking so long. There's a big piece of work to do but it'll be up and running in no time.
