TREK WSD Madone 5.2 - It does exist. And I want one desperately, but I've only got one kidney left to sell.

Brandy - those shades are hot! Check Ebay on occasion - I picked up my photochromic/polarized Rydons for a steal (relatively speaking) a little while back. It looks like the ones you want usually for around 100 or so? Here's one auction -

https://cgi.ebay.com/Rudy-Project-Sun...QQcmdZViewItem

At $85 + shipping, it's not that big of a steal, but it's a starting point. I wouldn't have the patience to get them online - gotta have NOW!!! But you better get a replacement ipod for the one you stole from your kid first . . .

Thanks Luwin. I have checked around and NO ONE near here carries them. I was excited when we stopped into Nytro on the Burrito Century, because they had them...though not in the color I want. At least I got to try them on.

Hi,

To all of you who are wishing for or have Rudy Project shades, are they now using metal that won't corrode? I was lusting for and bought Rudy Project Kerosene glass with the Rx insert. Most expensive pair of riding glasses that I ever bought. Anyway, the rubber nose pads "melted" and all of the metal parts corroded (green "rust"). Eventually, one of the trim pieces fell off and I gave up trying to save the things (after two years of use). A firend of mine with the same glasses had the same kind of problems. Swore I would never buy another Rudy Project eye wear product again.

(BTW, I don't think that I'm an overly corrosive individual.)

That was about 2 years ago. Are their glasses holding up better these days?

Cleave, I have a rudy project, but it's only a few months old so no signs of wear. I'll keep this in mind.

Jason, your true love gave you a girlfriend riding Vivian II?

At this time I have a few big ticket items that I'd like to get, but I'm still holding back... mtb frame ($500), PS3 ($600), DSLR ($1000), computer ($1500)... Man, I feel so materialistic.
