A new carbon frame!!!!

I just picked up my new frame and lenses from Eye-Q Optical in Harvard Square.

Those guys are very patient, and awesome, and they have a huge selection of unique and comfortable frames. They also always give you really great discounts.

They were not supposed to be done until Saturday, but for some reason they were already finished. A departure from my Ti and Al frame days, this frame is light, with super thin lenses and anti glare coating. Some would say that I am going with a full carbon frame this year.

The maker is a Japanese designer called Kisura.

Color is light caramel going to a darker caramel in the front of the rims.
These will be my Varsity level glasses which I will take to special events, such as the museum trip, or night at the opera.

I am relieved that you chose frames that will match the new Zanconato.

I want a drawer full of hip glasses for every occasion.

Also, Murphy, looking through your glasses was similar to when you go riding and there is a thick layer of salty crust on the lenses.
