I don't like doing that, it gives the cage in front of me time to slam the brakes. I move my elbows, and with my mirrors in the right place i can see everything. though i'm missing one now :/

Moving your elbows does become second nature after awhile. I am actually thinking about putting better mirrors on my bike to get around this. Lots of people complain about the thundercat mirrors. I know yours is not a cat, but same issues essentially.

yes ppl I am well used to pulling in my elbows and always check my blind spot. But I figured with all the accessories there would be some one who knew of mirrors that actually work.
