The clear-lens pair of sunglasses. To some, they're an anomaly, while to others, they're a necessary component of a versatile cycling wardrobe -- we tend to gravitate towards the latter.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
