Or, "What would Yehuda wear"
Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery is one of my everyday "must goes" on the interwebs.
Even when the story arcs seem needlessly drawn out sometimes, I tune in every day, either to find out what happens "next" or just to get a slice of life of characters who are all bike crazy, but in very different ways. There's Yehuda, the slightly preachy and overzealous transportation cyclist, Joe, the Roadie who's his partner, Thistle, bakfiets mom and mechanical engineer, Sister Sprocket- Shaker fixie pixie, and a host of other entertaining side characters.
I've been searching for a new pair of glasses. Now that we're getting more grey days and I'm almost always biking home after dark, I don't need sunglasses as often. However there are still a lot of times where I need to wear something to protect my eyes, either from flying crud or from plain old cold air. They need enough ventilation that they don't get all foggy at stoplights too.
If I were a racer, there are all kinds of amber and yellow lenses that I could wear, but I think I would feel silly wearing such sporty things with my regular clothes.
I have thought about buying clear lensed "vanity glasses" but I'm worried that they will scratched too easily. I'm tough on sunglasses, I toss them in the basket, lose them all the time, fatigue the cross pieces etc, Because I'm so tough on them I'd prefer a "dispososable" price point, something that will last the winter but not necessarily much more. $20 or less.
So, What would yehuda wear? What do you wear to protect your eyes? What should I look for to get me through the months ahead?
