If they didn't fit, thought they were ugly, and felt chinsy, why did you buy them?

If you already did it, do you think it was worth it? How much?

I did it on Friday and the price was a little more than I would have liked ($250) but it was a 3 hour process with a guy who seemed highly qualified and with a background in Physiology. He was able to determine that I did not have a leg length discrepancy (which I thought I had). If anything, it has eased my mind a bit knowing that I have had a professional assist me with my setup. Early results are positive (only twenty miles so far but no pain). I ended up raising my seat and moving it forward, adding footbeds with arches to correct my pedal stroke, moving my pedals out a few mms with some pedal washers, and flipping my stem. He also recommended that I get a shorter stem but I'm going to wait on that to see how this current setup feels.

I developed a pain on my left IT band and some lower back pain last year and wanted to get a fit before I did any damage. The fit includes free check-ins for the next 3-4 months to ensure that everything is working. If I'm able to ride pain and injury free then the $250 is well worth it.

after a few days of use, they are definitely all hype. nothing special at all.

oh well, live and learn!

if they are free of scratches, I would exchange them for some Radarlocks. For road cycling I prefer Radarlocks over Racing Jackets.

Clean them up, and if they could be sold as "new", you shouldn't have trouble exchanging them for Radarlocks.

Bought some used dual spd/flat pedals from a friend for 10$, works great.

Hoping this will allow me to use my race wheels without having to go through the hassle of a freehub transplant.

Speakers. Audible Rush Jam Pak. Cool because it clips right off and I can use it while playing golf or doing other things.

Finished building up my vintage track bike... I needed to buy the front wheel as it was the only piece I did not have in the shop. Figure that putting down some fixed miles will be good to get these legs back into shape and as my daughter may start riding track I can ride with her.

I am setting up a set of straight track bars that I can swap in for those occasions.

Is that the only lens they come with or do they add in the yellow and clear lens as well?
