Any suggestions on frameless for smaller faces? I've seen Pivlock and Tifosi Podium. Any others?

What about assos? Like Luca Paolini's? Not for everyone, but he pulls them off.

I have a Tifosi Podium and a small face. Works fine.

Best glasses I have ever used, like looking at the world in HD but they are not for a small face, thy're huge!

They look cool; too big for me. Plus, I don't want to take out a line of credit on my house to pay for them.

Small face here, and I absolutely love the Smith Pivlock V2. I originally had the V90s (still do, in fact), but I think the V2 is a noticeable improvement. I especially like the adjustable nosepiece, and for some reason they fit better and also give me more coverage.

Try to pick up a pair of the older Adidas Supernovas. There used to be two sizes, small and large, but both are cut to be low profile.
They have adjustable temples and the lenses are excellent (Silhouette produced) - can be ridden in a wide range of light and weather.
The set is quite light too and can be found for a great price still if you look hard enough.
Not sure why Adidas ran off this model, it was their best ever.

The Smith has terrible quality. The lenses scratch far too easily (even in the case during shipping.) I returned two pairs of Pivlocks that had QC problems before giving up.

I love my Bolle 6th sense, the S version is designed for smaller faces

Frameless is key for me because there's nothing hiding behind the frame when I quickly turn to look behind me.

Salice 006 - my current favorite glasses

Rudy Project Sportmask / Sportsmask - oddly lightweight, but they stay put

Giro Havik - used to get them super cheap on fleabay because they're discontinued?

NOS Brancale. High quality lenses and cool retro style at 28gr. You can still find them online for 25 euros:

If you want new stuff Assos have the best quality lenses-optics by far. I also wear Salice 006. Top glasses for the money but not the best in terms of optics.
