    You're gonna need a prescription full face helmet with extra added protection devices that are padded with protection bubbles and stuff. Or just a bubble.

    Um, I put on my helmet, then put on my glasses.
    Oh wait, I have oakleys that have straight stems so that makes it easier.

    Modern wire frames use thin and flexible metal for the arms; you can cut the ear pieces off with a pair of side cutters, sand down the tips so they don't gouge your skin on a tight-fitting helmet, and that's all it takes. So try to do this will help you.

    Do you have contacts? If you cannot wear them due to your prescription, there are sports googles as well. I have worn glasses for both mountain biking and ice hockey so kind of scratching my head here. Hope you can figure something out.

    God, you're SUCH a maroon.

    Go to an eyeglass temple place that sells glasses, two for the price of one. Put on the first pair and squash your helmet on your head. The glasses may break, but the helmet will conform to your head with the glasses on. Remove the helmet, pick glass shards from your face, squeegie blood away, and install second pair (the free ones) to your face. Reinstall helmet, and pesto, soblem prolved.

    I have wore framed glasses that are flexible that I use for riding. I put the glasses on first and use a croakie strap to get them tight around my head. Then I tilt the full face helmet so that the crown is angled forward and then spread the sides as far as I can while pulling it over my head and glasses. This method is easier based on width of helmet but it has always worked for me. But once I get the helmet on, it stays on all day till I am done riding, well maybe I take it off to eat lunch.

    Of course you don't wear your glasses when you wear a full face helmet. That's what the helmet is for, for god's sake.

    And if you want the full no-glasses effect, try wearing your helmet backwards, Picard.

    Be sure to post the results then. Well be glad to mock you then, too.

    It's too late to solve this now. The proper solution was to have your glasses properly fitted at birth, then sleep with your helmet on every night until your head grows bigger. It is critically important that you guess you helmet size right or you'll crush your brain before you finish growing. The plus side is I can get pretty good radio signals from space. The bad side is that 1960's full-face helmets are too retro to be fashionable and I can't wash my hair with the helmet stuck on my head.

    This forum is certainly full of red necks. You must earn alot of money from selling moonshine to buy carbon mountain bikes or you rob tourist of their money. Some of you Yankees are such a.... Hole there should be Nobel prize for redneck IQ each month.
