    The few Kawasaki frames I've assembled I have just pushed in by hand, rather easily too. I will say I hate the frame design. The only hold up I can think of is if the loops on the side need to be...

    I try to keep all the frames from each company priced the same. There may be 2 prices for 1 company if they do acetate and say titanium. Keeps it very simple. I can tell you the price of any frame in...

    As far as I can tell Chris thought everyone should be wearing FT35s with no AR probably in glass. Everything else was the result of greedy opticians. Unless...
