Zeus 2000 Brake Caliper-matted print
Zeus 2000 Brake Caliper
"My favorite, hands down. Zeus shamelessly copied Campagnolo Record components, but they went their own way with their brakes. I love the silver-gray anodized, delicately forged pieces that make a caliper like none other before or since. I first saw them on a Zeus road bike I bought from Freddie Karcher, a frame builder in Blanchard, Oklahoma. I took that bike with its gorgeous calipers to school in Kansas City. I rode with my friend Dave in Norman, and in the Wichitas. I rode it from Lawton to Wichita Falls, Texas and back one day. I eventually sold that Zeus back to Freddie, but I found another set of those sweet calipers, and I make sure they stay in service. They’re beautiful, highly functional, and unique."
