    clear lense full frame cycling glasses that don't cost $200?

    My old ones just broke. Don't really want to spend $200+. Prefer full frame. Must have clear lenses. What's out there? Went to the usual mail order sites and didn't see much. Thanks!

    Safety glasses from Home Depot. Wraparound, anti-fog hard-coated polycarbonate lenses, flex temples. Three bucks. Seriously.

    Maybe others have different experience, but I've found the optics on safety glasses are very poor. They're alright for inside and close work, but for distance they make you feel drunk.

    Every conceivable style right here, and for cheap too. Grainger's everywhere.

    Ended up with some Tifosi Ventoux from the LBS for $60. Work pretty good.
