    Thank you, and thanks for the feedback!

    I agree with your comments exactly, as you suggest, there are some real tradeoffs involved, especially with the small size. I thought it was worth making a minimal design (that still works!) rather than a mid-point, and I think getting the glass right goes a way to compensate. But there is no getting around how small the mirror is, which of course pays dividends the rest of the time, when it is tucked out of the way.

    I don't feel like we've replaced our enduro mirror at all- my dualsport 450, which I ride from the garage to hard trails and back, still has one of those because it's a better road mirror. I hope we've made the choices and tradeoffs clear on the website.

    can you show us a picture of the backside mounted on the bars? I'm not sure I have enough space

    I'm thinking about going with one enduro mirror and one trail mirror on my plated xcw 530. For those of you who ride dual sport (I'll be about 60% dirt/40% street), do you think this will be enough or should I go with two enduro mirrors?

    I think it really depends on what your goal is. Lots of customers (and me personally) have ridden quite a bit with just a single enduro mirror, so that is an option... but it leaves you needing to be very careful with head checks to the other side. An advantage of your idea (which I've never tried, but will!) is that you would always have a mirror to glance at, even when the enduro is folded down... I think it might work pretty well!
