    Want to see some pics of people wearing crankcases. Particularly the matte black /violet iridium. But post any others you might have.

    here's an older one of me. These quickly turned into my beater frames, but I still love wearing them.
     
  4. Not the best shot but its the pair you are looking for.

  5. Looks like a soul patch is mandatory for the Crankcrase frame...

    As I mentioned, I love wearing mine. They are nice and comfortable, and they give me a pretty close fit so light stays out. I wear them at the lake/beach, working on my truck in the driveway, or when I'm doing any sort of yard work

    Here is an older one of me too. I used to have the Polished White/Jade but got rid of it. I just picked up the Matte Clear/Ice Iridium Polarized ones that have been popping up on the Vault lately. That combo will probably get a lot of face time because Ice Iridium Polarized is too sweet. Overall, decent frame that is pretty underrated in my opinion.

  9. ^^^Soul Patch #4^^^

    I ended up trading mine for Fuel Cells which are just a tad bigger and were more comfortable for me for all day wear. I do have to say the Fuel Cell is noticeably heavier than the Crankcase though and if I didn't need the extra width of the Fuel Cell I'd still have them for sure. Awesome frame and a great colorway as well. Just be aware that Violet Iridium has an almost gradient effect when looking through the lens, going from a greenish tint to more of a brown and back to green again at the bottom. Most people don't mind it but for some its a deal breaker.

    Yes yes on the Soul Patch! I love the look of Violet too but am not a big fan of looking through them.
