I would suggest something with an insert. Yes, they are a pain in the butt and sort of look funny. But that being said, I couldn't imagine being stuck with only one lens choice. At a minimum you need a dark lens (sunny) and an amberish lens (overcast/early morning). Plus without an insert, if you leave in the afternoon and get home later than expected, you get the nice choice between being blind because your glasses are so dark or being blind because you have no glasses. Or, add another pair of glasses to your already overcrowded jersey pockets. With the dark lenses, nobody can tell there is an insert. With the other lenses, you can tell - but you wouldn't have the option to wear them anyway. The ideal would be a multilens pair of sunglasses with each wrap around lens being prescription, but I have a kid to feed and race fees to pay.
