No more over-the-shoulder looking while biking, 'A Second Look' created by New Zealand designer Annabelle Nichols is a concept for a wooden handlebar with a pair of rear view mirrors mounted. The designer applies 3D printing to the design so the product can be customized to meet the needs of each individual.

And you can also signal turns with embedded LEDs controlled by rotation switches. Annabelle explains:

'A Second Look' creates a relationship between modern life on the go and safety with attention to simplicity and style. Conceived as a high-quality urban bike accessory, influenced by a passion for cycling, the conception incorporates a rear vision mirrors integrated into a wooden bicycle bar with the intention of extending a cyclist rear vision. Seamlessly integrated into the wooden hand frame, rotation switches allow the motorist to indicate at night. In turn enhancing the visual relationship between motorists. The sleek white casing has been 3d printed allowing the focal point and angle of the mirror to be adjusted in CAD and custom made for the individual. Drawing functional elements from traditional motoring accessories, 'A Second Look' resolves the general miscommunication between style and safety in an elegant yet simplistic way. A metaphor of vision.
