Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

My shop just got a bunch. I've been wearing a set of the polarized black ones. I'm more than impressed with the lack of any distortion.

Wouldn't consider anything else. Thinking about some spendy photochromatic lens right now (no polarized bull**** tho).

I rock these Chopper glasses but with a tinted lens. They're cheap and they have padding around the lenses so no air gets in. Also, the cross pattée makes me go faster.

Remember when Briko Stingers were awesome?



I've got a pair of prescription aviators with a driver's tint. They work pretty well.

I'll be pretty happy when Wayfarers go back out of style again.

Granted, I probably sound kind of silly saying that when I'm wearing aviators.

I just buy sunglasses from the drug store or gas station. I lose/break sunglasses way too often to get anything else.
