just purchased my first TT specific bike - and have my first problem.
my normal glasses sit too low and i find i am looking though the frame - any suggestions for good TT glasses appreciated.
older, balder, faster, slimmer, better

    I have a visor built in to mine.

    I wear glasses normally but take them off in a TT as I am looking over the top of them anyway.

    I bought a pair of Oakly Split Jackets last week and used them in a 50m TT Sunday with no problems. I usually use Flak jackets but these seemed to offer a bit more protection around the sides. They are the smaller versions of the Jawbones

    I sweat too much for glasses :(

    But if it's a short TT on a cool day, my Oakleys work well. Or a visor. Only drawback of a visor is that you need to keep the helmet pushed down on your head. With glasses you can push the helmet back a bit if you need to to get it to sit flatter on your back.

    You can get longer visors, to allow for higher helmet brow positions...

    I just used my RP Raydons for the 1st time... Worked well.

    Oakley do a version of the radars for a situation like this - it has slightly higher bridge. Might be worth a try - think it's called the Oakley Radar XL.
