    Holy cow, due to the higher and wider handlebars, which I'm not used to coming from a teensier bike, I have been having trouble filtering (mirror score so far, 4-0 to me), but I've just gotten a pair of Touratech Zegas and the first go was like a big momma trying to squeeze through a turnstile...
