sun glasses.

ok, i need some sunglasses for under my helmit. and before some of you say it, i know there are dark shields for my helmit, but with my schedule, there is always one time where i am riding in the dark. so, does anyone have suggestions for a reletively cheap pair that seem to fit nicely under a helmit?

I always want to wear sunglasses when I ride, but I simply can't. I always have to have dark shades on during bright light due to sensitive eyes...however when I put on sunglasses under my helmet the pressure on my sinuses is so painful and gives me a headache. Also when I'm above a buck 50 it gets even worse.

i have the problem that most glasses dont fit on my crooked ass head correctly to begin with, then you got a helmit not allowing them to just sit where thay need to go. it gets sooooo annoying.

I usually look for the little cart at the mall with the guy selling 3 pairs for $10 that way if they get scratched or I drop them I dont give a *****..... I do have one good pair that I wont use for riding...

I thought about the oakley's with the built in mp3 player so I can have shades and tunes...

DOES ANYONE RIDE WITH THESE IF SO PM ME ON HOW THEY ARE..

here's your change...

if you can keep it so you can still hear the traffic there is no problem with tunes when riding in my opinion. when you are in your car do your drive with the windows down and radio off in the winter so you can hear the traffic...

then again hawaii in the winter is probably still nice huh....

this is what i did years ago. buy a cheap pair of plastic framed sunglasses and cut the ear ends off. they will easily fit into the helmet this way. i need to do this again because i get off work late in the evenings. but the weird thing is, i'm starting to get used to riding with a shaded visor at night.

I wear sunglasses everyday and will take my yellow lens if I think I'll be riding at night.

As far as music... I sport music anytime I'm not just in town!
