sunglasses for large cranium?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

sunglasses for large cranium?

I have a rather large head (size 8 hat or ~25" circumfrence) and just about every pair of sunglasses I've tried fit tight and give me a headache after awhile. Oakley Zeroes are about the only thing I can stand to wear and even they develop stress cracks in the middle after a few months and eventually break. I'd like to find a cheaper multi-lense solution.

Any suggestions from other cyclists with big noggins?

Helmet suggestions would be nice too. My Bell Influx just barely fits at the largest adjustment and I can't put anything on under it without being overtight.

I posted these on another thread, but they have been the best I've found. $9.00 at Wal-Mart. They have several different kinds and sizes. For $12.00 to $15.00 you can even get Polarized classes. I have a couple pair of Oakley Polarized for every day use, but I wouldn't even consider using a really good pair of classes for riding as I'd just scratch them up quickly.

As for a Helmet for larger heads, try the Giro Atmos. It's expensive, but this is where I won't hesitate to put my money.
