Yeah, I'm all about the crazy glasses and shoes(as evident by my own offerings), but those are just too much.

this guy usually walks around in track suits and blingy gold chains. He's easy to spot ,just look for the forehead, good spot for advertising space.

Exactly what I was thinking. That 1990 neon yellow. Gawd I have pics of me in races that I am afraid to look at...

I had bikes, shorts, glasses, etc. that looked so hideous they belong in the Smithsonean, or the weird sexual fetish museum in Prague...

I was thinking the same thing. I can't stand those glasses. I think if he went for something a little darker or maybe white frames that might help bring him into into the 90's and out of the late 80's.

I thought the exact same thing yesterday - they look like the glasses that LeMond debut'd in the late 80's.

Don't bet on it. Remember the Vuelta.

That is all.

Levi is quite done though.

Levi was never there, unless he is saving it all for the pyrennes(lost a lot already though so I'd say no). Disco's only hope was alberto after basso left, or tommy D

As for Vino's shades they are very easy to spot in the group which is my thinking behind the horrible color. It is a lot easier to take a quick glance over your shoulder and see the neon yellow than the faces.

Remember the Vuelta. I do and he's going to get some more time put in him.

Levi is quite done though. He was done before they started. Contador baby, Alberto Contador....

They don't look as nasty as that AWFUL Briiko (sp?) glasses from the early 90's.

Those glasses are awesome, I like 'em. Plus, if you're Vino you can wear anything.

Those glasses are Oakleys new Radar's. Sweet glasses especially the lenses which repel water and sweat. I have a pair and sweat just flows right off them, I can wear them for a 4+ hour ride and not have to wipe them off once. At leat half the tour riders are wearing them. I like the bright yellow though, maybe he was thinking they would look good with his yellow jersey.
