ReBcycle beer view mirrors consist of an acrylic mirror mounted in a used bottle cap (from one of 400+ beer, cider, or soda options I have) and attached to a bicycle spoke. The spoke is shaped to fit on the temple of a pair of glasses or a bicycle helmet.

The mirror, if mounted on the left temple and properly adjusted, is designed to help people riding their bicycle see vehicles approaching them from behind. Using the beer view mirror (adjusted to show just a bit of the left ear) has been helpful to me and I hope that others will like it.

While most ReBcycle listings have bottle caps from one specific state or region of the country, this listing has bottle caps from throughout the United States and around the world. For some of the listings I have multiple variations or colors of a cap, so those are listed as "(various)" and I'll talk with you after you order to let you know the options and get you the one you want. I'm always looking for more caps from good craft beers. If you're looking for a specific beer you can request it in your order or look in the listing for the state or region where that beer comes from. If I don't have that bottle cap I will do my best to get it or can make it from bottle caps you supply to me.

Spokes are available in long or short lengths, depending on personal preference. Short spokes (with their mirrors) are usually between 4 1/2" and 5 1/2" long. Long spokes (with their mirrors) are usually between 6 1/2" and 8 1/2" in length. Most people seem to prefer the long spoke because the mirror takes up less of the users visual frame and because it can be more easily adjusted to see around hair, hats, and such. Some people prefer the short spokes because they easily fit in a shirt pocket and are slightly more lightweight.

The bike spokes are from Baltimore City bike repair shops and local cyclists and vary widely in style and character. The spokes are shaped by me and dipped in a plastic to reduce scratching of the glasses temple. Users can choose the color of plastic (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, or black) in addition to the length of the spoke. I also make spokes shaped to fit a bicycle helmet. They seem to fit best on helmets with a hard plastic cover, but might work for a more aerodynamic helmet as well. I would recommend e-mailing if you're ordering a helmet-mounted mirror so we can talk about it.

The beer caps are from myself and my friends and are washed to remove beer residue. We also have a separate listing for Soda View Mirrors with bottle caps from non-alcoholic beverages, a listing for alcoholic ciders and other alcoholic drinks that aren't beer, and of course for beers from different regions (South, MD/DE, PA, NY/NJ, New England, Midwest, CO/NM/UT/MT, California, Pacific NW, International, and macrobrews).

The mirrors can also be used for rowing crew or other activities where seeing behind you is helpful. Rowers generally want their mirrors adjusted for use on the right temple, as do cyclists in countries where vehicles drive on the left, so please let me know if that is your preference.
