    No they're both paraffin and smoke like hell, the front has a lovely chunky bullseye lenses the rear a plain but thick red glass.....I'll upgrade to carbide when I find a pair I like at the right price ie cheap!

    They're nice grips GM, here's the wife's picture of me just prior to going out on our local 'tweed run',

    The jeacket is a 70's item but is comfortable and disposable enough just in case, the 'plus fours' are coverted from an old pair of Swess army work trousers.

    That's great! Both tweed runs and bicycle are enviable!
