    Which interchangeable glasses for frequent glass changes?

    Hi,

    I need a new bike glasses with the following requirements:

    1. Interchangeable glasses
    2. Option of at least a transparent glass and a dark grey glass
    3. Rapid change of glasses
    4. Robust, should withstand at least 500 changes without breaking, snapping, cracking etc.

    Can anyone recommend some glasses? I'm looking at the Oakley M frames, but I don't know if they can take the beating of at least 500 changes.

    I use Oakley m frames for work, as safety glasses, riding, and when I play competitive sports. I change them and, its by far the easiest changing lens. Not the most fashionable but the optics are second to none.

    Try any of the Tifosi glasses with removable lenses. Depending on which model you choose, you'll get clear, dark grey and red lenses. You can also get lenses that automatically darken. I bought my Tifosi Veloce glasses at REI.

    oakley m frames. they are plenty durable and you dont feel like you are going to snap something everytime you go to change them out. and you can get replacement lenses fairly easily if they get scratched, although they are very scratch resistant

    Jawbones, duh.

    Or M-frames for that 2002 A-Rod look.

    I know they aren't quite as "nice" as some other more expensive brands like Oakley or Smith, but I have been a big fan of Tifosi for years. I use them exclusively for cycling, and have other brands like Oakley and RayBan for casual, everyday wear.

    The thing I like about Tifosi is their styling and their price-point. I think the Dolomites look great on and off the bike, and for less than $80, you get the frames and 3 sets of lenses (usually gray, persimmon and clear). You can also upgrade to the Fototec lenses (Backcountry Orange is AWESOME for mountain biking in the woods) for around $50.

    My only minor complaint about Tifosi lenses is that if you tend to be rough with your sunglasses, their lenses tend to scratch easier than some other brands. I try to take good care of mine for the most part, but there are some minor scuffs on a few of my lenses.
