Does anyone know if the Zeus (2001) brake lever body is a close enough copy to Campy NR to use the same hoods? Would standard DiaComp hoods fit well?

Also, as a side note, I was looking today through some slides I took during my stay in Spain from 1977. I came across some shots of Luis Ocana, Freddy Maertens, and American racer Mike Neel (w/his Fabo Alan team bike) when the Vuelta de Espana came to Valencia.

Hi Kerry:

My opinion would be no, and no, regarding the hoods question. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that is really close to fitting the old Zeus levers? (It's an excellent question, by the way, Kerry - thanks for asking!).
