    ....when you knew everything Oakley made? Coming from an 80s BMX background, I had Oakley gear to ride in and my grips. They had a couple of t-shirt designs, Frogskins came out and that was about it.

    Time went by, more glasses started to come on the scene but I still knew the whole range and colour options. I was friends with a good shop and that's where I bought my first Mumbos. I'll say I lost it in the late 90s. I couldn't keep up either mentally or financially! I wanted to collect stuff as it was released but didnt earn enough to do so and I lost track of the brand. :(

    Now I guess some you may have followed the brand for years, othes only recently. So can you remember when you knew all the gear? Or do you know everything now?! :eek:

    One more question, why the hell aren't line breaks appearing in my text?! I didn't type it like that. :?

    Ok, I edited and pasted the code in. Such a n00b!

    Oakley is into so much stuff nowadays, its almost impossible to keep ontop of everything. Unless you spend your life trying to track down every t-shirt, wallet, and ski parka they make... I just stick with eyewear only, and there's lots I don't know ;)

    I've been wear Oakley for 24 years and I know next to nothing. I've only recently become a collector.

    I bought a pair of Sub Zero's in the early 90's at the local bike store.... It was the only pair of Oakley's in the entire store. I had never heard of the brand before but the glasses were simply amazing. Later on I noticed that the same store had got more Oakley's, including the x-metals. Unfortunately, they were way out of my price range and for a longest time I lost interest. Just recently though I bought a pair of vintage M Frames and now I'm looking at x-metals again. I think I'm finally ready to become a collector.

    I can recall the Sub Zeros being launched, such a bizarre design and shape at the time. I think Thomas Frischknect (sp?) rode XC MTB with them on.
