The clear are great except they distort distant, high sodium(I think) street lights in a funky way.Nothing that causes any problems.Just annoying...
Anybody else know what I'm talking about?I'm gonna try the high-vis yellow ones next and see how they are at night.

Go big or go home huh???.....:lol3

I nearly fucked up myself this morning on some jump I was about to overcook...I pussed out at the last second because I saw dew all over the grass I was aiming towards...fookin' disc brakes work to well at times.I did an unexpected endo that nearly launched me..Scraped the shit outta my calf pulling off the pedals looking for ground with my feet....I'm sure it had all kinds of jethro grace to it for the onlookers.....:D

in my line of riding, OTB means what I did today on the ride: Off The Back.

Rode over to Specialized and hung out for a bit BS-ing about cars. 1215 and we're off. Immediately people are feeling froggy... Hmmmmm not so bueno.

Hammer goes down and BANG! my legs left another crater in the road. Looked down and we were only doing 37-39kph when I blew. I used to be able to do 37-39 MILES Per Hour!!! :baldy

I figger I need the speedwork for cross season, so... back on Tues for more punishment.

Hi, I'm Mike. I'll be your hairly-legged wheelsuscker today. :deal

i'm pretty strong on a mountain bike, but i don't have a good spin, so it's easy to get dropped on an A road ride. i was in the bike business for years - yeti -and i rode with Sinyard and the specialized folks. they had some hammers and they tried hard to punish the visitors. same with the schwinn crowd.

Yep and I was hoping I could hook you up with something for the parts.

Do you want Pro M's (non hinged)or standards?Do you want 4 differant frames?
I can only order on mondays and this coming one is a holiday.They have to be shipped to me and then out to you so it will take a couple of weeks probably.

Mulekick 09-01-2006 03:16 PM

Well piss Mike.I just called Oakley and they won't sell just the frames.....:bluduh

I can get you a smokin deal on a custom pair....

Here's the link to the design your own page...
