    Picked up some used Pennys but the joints connected to the nose "X" are a bit loose, making them feel fragile. How can i resolve this or who should i turn to? Any help is appriciated. (On top of that I'm looking for replacement nose bombs)

    You can send them off to Oakley for a tune-up. They'll tighten the nose bridge and replace the nose bombs. Give the customer service line for your area a call for details.

    Welcome to the forum! Call Oakley and make sure they WILL do the tune up for you. Since the Penny is one of the rarer frames in which parts are discontinued, nosepads are a big issue in locating. I don't believe they have nosepads at Oakley HQ, but as your post spends time on the forum, and you grow as a member, someone may have an extra pair to help you out.....

    I emailed U.S. customer care last week about Penny bridge repair (partial tune up specifically). The response below is what I got back:



    Though I've read people on here have gotten it done in walk-ins at HQ. So your mileage may vary.
