Before I take the plunge into a new pair I wanted to see what you all may have that you aren't using. Looking for excellent to like new condition. I am a fan of Smith and Rudy Project - but open to others. Let me know what you have. Bonus points for Interchangeable lenses.

Honestly, these are the ugliest free glasses I've ever bought. They are wonderful in their franken-oakley way.

I think shipping is $8 from China. I used them a lot in Colorado last month.

Worth it, IMO

You'll want a real pair, too. I'm just throwing this out there.

Peter Sagan has made it all cool again...



Louis pal gave me a set of super-huge glasses several years ago, which I still have... He knew something I didn't.

Yes. Seriously.

I wound up ordering a jersey, too just to see what they are like. I figured it was one of those unpredictable Asian vendor fits: I ordered a XXL and should have ordered an XL. I'm normally right between an L and XL. They are what they are, and what you'd expect for the price.

Site says 7-30 shipping days. Still not a bad deal to try them out for fit before purchasing the real Oakley..

It took at least two weeks to get mine. I had forgotten about them.

Haaahaha. I ordered a pair of the $7.99 Foakleys. Would be nice for commuting.

Jawbreakers are great glasses. However some dislike the design. I'd suggest finding some racing jackets/jawbones. Great glasses.

Wow...those cheapies would actually be great for CX - glasses often take a beating and really need serve no other purpose beyond keep sh*t out of your eyes and cutting some glare if needed.

Do they use the same lenses as the real thing?
Cause that would be cool.

I don't think so, but I've never owned the real thing.
