My wife sells purses and stuff on a site called Mercari. Kinda like eBay. I asked her if they had stuff other then women's accessories. Sure enough this cassette popped up when I searched for sram red. Nothing else really on the site other then this cassette that caught my attention.

One of my LBSs has had an Open U.P.P.E.R. frame in my size hanging in their shop for quite a while, but the price was beyond what I wanted to pay. Anyway, I was in there yesterday, and they had an EOFY sale going and had reduced the price of the frame by about 25%, so I talked myself into buying it. Now I just need to buy all the lightweight bits to hang on it.

Wanted to try these for a long time. Shaved about 40 grams from my mandibles.

Once again Sir, you get the Baller Award! :beerchug:

Let me know how you like them and how they compare to other glasses you've used. I ahve considered for a long time, but just haven't gotten myself to pull the trigger.

Well thank you.😀
To be honest I've never really considered buying these as they are $500, but they popped up on Bicycle Market, (second hand site) for $150, the guy was local and used to work in my LBS, so it was a no brainer.
They are great to be honest, very light and the clear lenses on the bottom are a good idea. I haven't used them in full sun, (don't know if they are dark enough) but will try. When it's really bright I use my Jawbreakers.

Chain in plastik bag, plastik bag with pin init , warranty paper, instruction thick like a Bible and everything in the box nicely wrapped with plastic..... I'm already getting sick writing this.
Such a wastage Campagnolo!
