[quote="elite504]Just moved to a "modern" M-frame with a beefie hinge, but the lens isn't held so tight and the arms are longer and catch up in your helmet.[/quote]

Ouch! You're supposed to put them on your face - not down there!!

I have a selection of M-frames too 8)

just to update, gave in and got some new contact lenses.

But have discovered these Bolle Tracker safety glasses.
Brilliant ! Tenner from screwfix, available in clear or yellow (or tinted if you hunt the net).

Really comfy and they have a removeable goggle strap as well.
I'm about to order some prescription inserts and some tinted ones.

Ancient M Frames , swap lenses dependent on weather (clear or choice of tint Irid's ) and if it's really bright Black Irid Magnesium M frames.

I tried those mag M frames when they first came out and couldn't get on with them as the arms felt too chunky.
On the bike I mostly wear Oakley Radars and change lens depending on lighting conditions, usually Fire iridium for bright sunny days and G-30 for most other conditions apart from night time when clear is best. The hydrophobic coating works well to bead of any water.
I also use M-frames and more recently Split Jackets.
However these aren't cheap but are the best fitting glasses I have used.
