    Hello, I was wondering if some of you knowledgeable M frame folks can teach me a lesson about Mumbo's. The original Mumbo was only offered in 3 frame colors and 3 lens types (all grey right?). Was for example, the neon yellow only sold with a particular lens type, or did oakley offer 3 different versions of neon yellow with each lens type? Basically I would like to know how many combinations of Mumbo's Oakley sold, if it was only 3 (one color with a specific lens attached to it), or if it was 9 (each color available with each lens type)? Thanks for dropping some knowledge, anyone!

    The Mumbo can't really be distinguished from the first generation M Frame can it? Other than having retail packaging that says "Mumbo (with Hammers)" I don't think there is a difference.

    all i see stated in the wiki is that there were 3 original lens types (V, 67, Hybrid) offered w/ 3 frame types (black, neon yellow, white). i want to know if each frame type had only a single specific lens that it was offered with or if you could buy any color frame with any of the 3 lenses (making it 9 different combo's instead of 3?). basically how many unique model numbers were there for the original mumbo release, 3 or 9? or something else?

    hi adrian

    hope my responces helped you on the o-review

    rustpot...

    mumbos were the first m frames but due to a legal rangle with the mambo clothing company, (names mumbo was too similar to mambo) oakley then changed the name from mumbos to m-frames.

    they then released additional new frame colourways in addition to the black, white and neon yellow.

    the then newly released m frames didnt come in neon yellow which is why they are so sought after, however the black and white did continue for a while, so i guess mumbos and m-frames in black and white could be classed the same other than the packaging which would definitively tell you.

    if you had a black or white pair in a m-frame box they are m-frames if they are in a box with the neon yellow mumbo text they are mumbos!

    weren't they sold as just the frames? Then you could pick any lens shape making it 9 different combos?

    all sold with grey lenses as standard in the 3 variational shapes, then you could buy other colourways seperately.
