Thanks Dave for the kind comments.
I think I have captured the 3 Brands In the one shot that I feel have the same charter for quality and purpose beyond reason.
Oakley , De Rosa and Campagnolo.

suggestion is that if you have an issue with the internals of any of the oakley watches. A reputable watch repairer will be able to do the jo for half the price Oakley charges.

Im with Dann. I have 24 Oakley watches and 2 Automatics. All bar the Automatics have been taken to the LWC (Local Watch Shop)and for $15AUD battery has been swapped in 10 mins . No issues ever.
The 10 bar test is a further $40 but as Dann indicates if you dont swim with the watch then not worth it.

I am not suprised as this has been happnening for quite some time on the bicycle frame scene for a while.
you can now easily find a Pinnarello Dogma frame ithink 2 worth 9k AUD for $600 and are very difficult to tell the difference.

If you read the Tyler Hamilton Book "The Secret Race"
You will find that the Oakley Marketing rep named Stephanie McIlvain was present at the hospital when Lance was diagnosed with Cancer and witnessed Lance indcate to the doctors that he was taking all the performance enhancing drugs EPO, ect.
When it came to Stephanie testifing in court in 2005 if she heard Lance state this to the doctors. She chose to support Lance and continue the coverup. My understanding from other investigations I have seen in the last week on the matter that she was instructed by Oakley management not to make the brand look bad.
I wonder whome within Oakley asked her to Lie?

Lance was still true to the Oakley culture.
He took doping beyond reason and purpose.

Hi Guy's
I have a few models of thump and Orokr.
I have 2 X Thumps, 1x Thump 2 , 2x Thump pros, and 1x split thump. 1X Orokr and 2 X Orokr Pro's

The Thump battery life has shortend to 2 hour playtime and if I let the battries fully discharge I have to remove all files and reboot the thump to get them to work. can see these will get to a point they will not work at all. So avoid buying any pairs from ebay.

As for thump 2 the left ear piece stopped working as well.'
opened it up to take a look and good luck to anyone who can see whats wrong. Its impossible to try and fix, so they are rendered usless and just act as a display.

Thump Pro and split thump, touch wood, are still going strong and reduced batterylife is not an issue but evey time i use them for cycling I have to ensure I wipe all the sweat off immediately and clean them otherwise they will fail. Had this happen to my Oroker pro's volume buttons no longer work.

Great idea the Thump line but they have serious issues with durability. They dont like to be sweated on.
Also had the same warranty / Repair issue here in Australia. No parts at all.

Check this link out. Very interesting presentation of the top 10 riders each year Lance won.
Note: all riders with black card have been busted for doping.
It does make you wonder that in all 7 years Lance being clean was beating all the dopers.

I had the same issue.
My unobtainium band on my blade broke and when I rang Oakley they were out of stock and not making any more. Apparantly there are no unobtainium bands left for the blade worldwide in the system. They searched hig and low and found one in someones drawer at HO and was lucky to get one of the last ones around.

HI Guy's
I have been many times to the OSP offices in St Kilda.
Agree with you all not that great but one thing they do well is the rooftop parties they hold in summer.

Some good news.
OSP searched high and low for a replacement band on the BLADE 2 and came up trumps.
They have restord my faith in looking after customers.

Terror thanks for the advice . I decided to order all spare replacement unobtainum bands while I can get them for the watches I have so I can avoid this situation in the future.

Anyone know where to get a replacement Blade II unobtanium band?
According to Oakley South Pacific the product has been discontinued and no spares are available anymore.
Thats crazy as I only purchased the watch 3 years ago
The band has decided to break and now its useless if i cant get it fixed.

please tell me this is not the case !

I have been informed by a brand manager from O that the WTF is non exsistant. No such product called WTF is in the pipeline.

Hope its not true.

Wonder If anyone has see or heard of the 14 year old Aussie busted in Bali for buying drugs. Its getting plenty of attention here in Aus media.
He may have poor judgement in his recreational activities but he sure has good taste in sunglasses.

Yes, confirmed that the next 2 pairs went for $800USD.
That is crazy.

First 2 pairs went for $650USD.
A bit expensive considering its just a custom pair?
Anyone agree?
