    Started riding a bicycle for part of my daily commute ( http://citibikenyc.com/ )

    Yeah, it's crazy riding in NYC, but hey, so is life ...

    Anyways, was thinking of using a strap (aka croakie) on my Oakleys to keep them from possibly falling off my face during a bumpy ride.

    Anyone use something like this that they could recommend?

    Oakley or some other brand is fine ...

    Oakley doesn't make their own strap for lifestyle frames. Radarlock, M Frame, Racing Jacket, M Frame 2.0, M Frame 3.0, Split Jacket, Pro M Frame, Water Jacket... I think that's all that have provisions for a strap.

    Croakies and similar, if I remember right, are just a lanyard to take them off and hang on your neck. And the Croakies float if the glasses aren't too heavy? Anyway, you'd need a generic strap of some kind.

    Check out your local bicycle shop. They usually have shade straps.

    I got a cheap generic strap in the Walmart fishing department that works pretty good.

    There are 2 versions that you will see commonly there is the simple neoprene strap that is just for resting rhem on your neck as stated. There are also versions that have a slide and a string so they can be tightened around your head. That type should work better for your situation.
