Reason 27 why riding a bent is a good deal

There is a thread about perscription glasses for cyclist and how they slip down on the nose. I have a set of perscription sun glasses I got at Walmart for about $100. Sitting up right on my bents, unlike hanging my head down on a DF bike, my glasses do not slip down. Score another benefit of bents.

And a closely related number 28 ... road bikers, much more so tri bike riders have their heads so far tilted down that protective eye wear get drenched with sweat.

I don't even use eye wear because after 5 miles I can't see. I employe the squint and get bugs out of my eye when I get home technique.

Still ride an upright ... maybe some day.

No more sweat stinging your eyes either.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
