I use mine for mountain and road cycling and love these shades!! I have a medium sized faced and I have found these shades to stick on my face without sliding off. The frames do feel a little cheap in your hand, but they seem to work just fine. I have now used all three lenses for sunny and cloudy days as well as night riding and all works perfectly. All in all no complaints.
03/29/2013 Update: I've had mine now for a few months now and the left red mirror lens has been scratched probably by a hanging branch. I just got off the phone with Smith Optics customer service and they don't warranty their lenses. They sell their lenses on their site for $40 a set only and I was told I was welcome to buy the whole set (even though only one lens is damaged). They also have a recycling program where you can send your glasses in and get up to 50% off a new pair. I've never worn a pair of sunglasses before while mountain biking that became scratched so quickly and easily. Either way, I'm done giving my money to a company that uses sub-par materials in their craftsmanship and does not back up their products.
I bought the Medium sized Lezyne saddle bag to use while road biking. Wanted enough space to fit a 700X23 tube, tire levers, 16oz CO2 cartridge and small Planet Kiss inflator, chain tool, wallet, iphone and cleat protectors. This saddle bag will NOT come even close to fitting all this. Besides the fitment issue I really liked the quality and design of this product.
Figured I would give these bib shorts a shot as they were priced well below other bibs. I used them once for mountain biking on a WTB saddle (much more cushion than my road saddle) and could not wait to get off the bike due to the pain and discomfort of the pad in these. Mountain biking is much more forgiving on the quality of pad you choose for your bib, but even these failed horribly. Spend a little extra $$ and get A LOT in return for your hard-earned money.
I am 5"7, 165 pounds and found the large size bib shorts to be extra long in the thigh area and the material felt like cardboard. Can't describe the feel of the pad or the bib on a ride as I packed them back up and sent them back . Backcountry of course took them back hassle free as always :-)
The black / yellow / fluorescent white variation of this jersey looks great but fits WAAAY too small. I am 5' 7" weighing 170 with a 42" chest and the large was way too tight on me to the point where the zipper unzipped itself on my chest. The shoulders also felt so tight that I had concern for the shirt ripping by moving my arms up and down over time. Material and design look excellent, but you'll definitely want to order a size or two up from your usual fit.
