James has found himself ditching a favourite brand to get some new gear

When you get a family, you start to question every penny of spend on things like cycling. 

When it gets to the end of the year and you need one or two new products to get you started for the next year its even more of a challenge to justify cost. 

Two pairs of Oakley sunglasses was a pretty decadent thing to be honest. I had radars and jawbones with a whole comination of lenses. Sadly the need for some new kit meant I had to sell them. 

So for the first time since 1992 I am riding without the iconic brand across my eyes. So what did I choose? 

I had been looking at the BBB select model. A brilliant looking pair of specs with an attractive price tag when you are selling things to generate some cash. 

Reviews told me that the lenses were hard to change and it was by chance in my LBS that the new "Adapt" model were mentioned. 

A bit of googling and some time in front of a mirror (vain that I am !) sealed the deal. 

First impressions are that these are really good glasses. The lenses look good and there is a mind boggling choice of colourways. 

Lenses are changed by a simple turn of the nose piece and I think they look good... you may argue!

I can recommend these glasses and hope that they get some use during a warm dry summer  1
