Sounds a good idea. I need a spare folding tyre and am interested in one of
those helmet LED thingos + possibly some cork bar tape. If you are still
keen, how do you want to organise it?

Also, has anyone here bought sunglasses from probikekit.com ?

Cheers,

Vince

I only want to order a couple of things, bar tape, rim tape, a bike
bell with a compass in it, a few other bits and pieces. Nothing heavy.
Its all stuff I could ride somewhere to pick up on a long bike ride
just for the heck of it, or maybe you ride to see me. Depends on who
has the most and heaviest stuff.

I'm in Thornlie, work in Winthrop. Where are you?

Some Brissie riders were enthusing the other day about the $50 PBK
sunnies cf Rudy Projects for $350. They don't match it in the swank
stakes but they were saying they work well enough. I got some
multi-lens Serfas locally for $60 that do fine. My mate buys Bolle
safety glasses for $10 - he's scottish and likes them so much he would
probably pay $12.50 a pair!

I got some multi lens Kuoto glasses from them for around $35 on special IIRC. They were great - until I lost them. Now I have 4 sets of lenses and nothing to hold them with. :mad:

I bought a pair of Prorace sunnies (5 interchangeable lenses, yada
yada) for just over $30 a while ago.

Very, very happy with them. I'll let the other Brisvegans pipe in with
sledges about how they actually look - but I like them.... *grins*

I bought them too and very happy with them. Low light lens for winter
commuting and the darkest ones for summer commuting.

The stuff I was thinking of getting is all reasonably light too - the
largest items being two folding tyres, which easily fit into a backpack.
I'm in Duncraig, and work in Malaga. (Yes, the other end of the earth to
you.) Perhaps we could go half way and meet in South Perth?

I'm happy to place the order for both of us, or you can if you prefer to get
the goods immediately. If you email me directly at [email protected], we can
arrange the order.

Cheers,

Vince

donga... where does your friend get his bolle safety glasses from? i had a pair for 4 years and stopped wearing them a few months ago when the lenses got terribly scratched. super comfy! can you find out where to get them? id like a pair for uni lab and a pair for work.
and maybe a pair for riding too ;)

I rate the Kuotas as well, as I havent lost them yet, well put
together, easy to use and keep clean and the mirrored lens is good for
'race face' posing at the Time Trial photo ops.

I bought a set of the Kuota five-lens glasses which have been very good.
My only critisism (and it's a major on in my view) is the writing on the
lens (Kuota is written along the bottom) gets in the way of my
peripheral vision. I could get it off with my fingernail on the mirror
lenses but not the others.

Clever ploy, buy the glasses, then you have to get the matching bike!

Hey, I already spent way too much in that order!

That's a worry, too. Are you trying to say the glasses won't fit my extreme
anti-trendy image? I'll have to get a 'bent and wear an overcoat and
sandles to compensate.

Cheers,

Vince

Wow, they are fast. The order arrived today - a week to get stuff from the
UK is pretty impressive.

Oh yeah, and I really like the new sunnies!
