I am looking to put a end mount mirror that is mounted on the inside of the handle bar . I have a Gazelle C8 step thru .The people that sold me this bike did not recommend this style of mirror because of cutting the end of the handle grip (left side). Has anyone mounted this mirror ? BTW I like this mirror because it is glass.

its usually not big deal to cut the end off a grip for a mirror have done it several times. some grips come with a removable end.

I have the same Nexus 8 IGH as your C8 and I use Ergon grips and a mirrycle bar end mirror. I see from Court’s review of the C8 it uses locking grips, that would be a simple swap out for a pair of ergon GP1 grips like mine that have a shorter right grip to accommodate the Shimano Nexus revoshift twist shifter

Thanks guys for the heads up! The existing grips have a faux leather stitch, so I will order the mirror and cut into the grip if it looks tacky I will swap out them out with the GP1.

I have one of these on both of my bikes. Works great. End of bars look fine with mirror in place. I did have a removable plug, so no cutting, but the size and placement is perfect, so I'd have cut if I had to cut. Bike is Rize RX.

Here's a Mirrcycle on a C8 with Ergon GP1 "Nexus" grips". I prefer the Ergons, I had them on other bikes, I saved the leather ones if I ever want to put things back stock.

I mounted a Mirrcycle on my bike and the grip required cutting. It was a real PITA until I got serious. (and used some smarts) The solution was to drill a small hole dead center of the grip end and using the correct size speedbore bit and some caution I opened the end of the grip to the diameter required. The grip looks fine IMO, and I'm real anal retentive. CN
