Hello O Brothers!

I have recently bought a TB2 and I'm now facing the dilemma of resizing it or not.
I did my research and it seems that some members have found a way to resize without cutting the rubber band. Unfortunately the thread that had the pics showing how to do it is no longer available.
Therefore I'm asking for your help. Does anybody remember how it was done? I'll appreciate any advice.

I can’t remember exactly but you will have to cut the band no matter what for resizing. I don’t think there’s any way around that. You can glue the pieces back to look like a full band, but you will need to cut.

There is the thought that you can remove the links but not cut the rubber band and “fold” it, but I can’t see that working or being comfortable to wear.

Thanks for your reply Oak!
Regarding cutting the band or not, I found an old thread (2009-2010!) where Revolution said "I actually managed to almost size my TBII without cutting the band. It is just a trial but seems to be relatively stable. I will post pics when I get back". Sadly he hasn't been around for some time, and I can't find the pics he mentioned.
Here's that post:
I'm hoping there's a way...

I’m looking forward to any thoughts and ideas as well. I looked into it previously for mine, but I couldn’t figure out how it could be done so that there wouldn’t be stress on the clasp (or even how to safely secure the link when the Unobtainium is still in the way) and remain wearable. But I suppose it also depends on how many links you need to remove. If you need to remove only a couple, I suppose you can do it without cutting. If you need to remove more than just a few, the extra Unobtainium will run over the clasp and be problematic.

Yeah, that's what I thought as well. Thanks for the insights Oak.
Let's hope someone chimes in with some additional info.
On the same subject. Is there any tutorial somewhere on how to cut the band and remove the Ti plates? Can't seem to find it. There was one in the same thread I posted earlier, but the pics are not available anymore.

I am sure he won't mind me promoting his latest venture but forum member Spenc is in the process of sourcing an aftermarket rubber band for the TB2.

This is on oakleyforum.com

He needs people to commit to buying one to drive the project forward.
