Graham's Zeus city bike

     This is another one of Graham's bikes. It is a Zeus frame built up with a mix of components and used as an upright around town city bike. Zeus was a company out of Spain that not only made frames, but also made complete component groups! Most of their stuff closely resembles Campagnolo componentry in design, especially in the 1970's. Zeus were were  competitors with Campagnolo, and the quality of their top of the line stuff was just as good, if not better than their Italian counterpart. No other company quite embraced the drillium trend like Zeus and their 2000 group was full of nicely polished and drilled components with titanium bits. their Ocana model bike was amazing! Here is a link to the Classic Rendezvous page about the marque: Zeus. I am on the hunt for a complete Zeus bike in my size with a 2000 group. Maybe someday...
