Does anyone out there ride with these glasses. They look like they would be great for cycling. What are some of your opinions of them? Also what other sunglasses do some of you prefer?

I've tried them out and they seemed really good, good clear vision, nice fit (for my head), and cool looks. There are lots of replacement lenses out there for the Tayos and they're a lot cheaper than Oakley M-Frames! The lens may fog a bit when you stop but they clear up once you start moving again.

Personally I use the Kerosene because of the RX adapter (I'm blind as a bat and can't wear contacts!), the Tayo doesn't have one I believe.

Rudy Projects glasses are top quality, level with or better than Oakley glasses, they're cheaper and they have a great warranty service.

I can't comment on the Tayo, but I can on Rudy Projects in general and in particular, the Kerosene. Great quality, no problems, seem to be harder to scratch than my Oakleys. I still prefer the ultralight M-Frame though. I've got many lenses and can change them out in about 3 seconds.

Ditto above comments on the Kerosenes. I use them because of the optical adapter. Been wearing them for the whole season and they are great - no headaches or sore ears.

I'll stick to the much cheaper clone versions from ProBikeKit.com since I can't get myself to spend so much on a pair of shades. I know I'll drop them few times every month and scratch the lenses up anyway. Gotta' balance the other expenditures in life. $20 is hard to beat.

I dunno... I have a few $100 sunglasses that are still like new after years of use. I've also probably have purchased a dozen "throwaway" glasses that end up lost or broken... I have a difficult time taking care of or keeping track of $20 sunglasses.

It's like smokers who keep the same Zippo for years, but have lost/misplaced dozens of Bics. My Rudy Projects stay on my face on in their case- the cheap sunglasses end up on the floor of my car, or stuck in the seat, left at work, etc...

I had a pair of Tayo's that I used for about 3 years. I'm not hard on my glasses, but when my wife knocked them off of a shelf onto a carpeted, padded floor the frame broke in two. I guess it was just their time to go. Other than what seemed like an innocent little bump causing their demise, I was very satisfied with them and would buy another pair (if I didn't already have a couple pairs of nice Brikos.)

Wow how can this place sell Rudy Project Tayo's for $45 dollars? Have you used them before and how do you figure out the spanish? Let me know as soon as possible if this is a legit price. Please email me.
Thanks,

Been riding with Bolle Parole lens system shades for the last 3 years. Clear vision, multiple lens options, have 2 models for narrow or wide face, Rx insert available. They don't fit really tight to the head and as a precaution, I wear helmet straps over the ear pieces. Had from www.pairofshades.com, less than $90 shipped for the 4 lens system Parole.
