It seems my short post could be misunderstood. It was to show how any absolutes or how this/that is superior seem to rankle the fur.

Maybe you post the entire thread/discussion content as it started with an equally bold statement:

Zeus made some headsets in the early 70s that were mechanically superior to those from Campagnolo.

But this is debating history as the modern sealed cartridge headset is far superior to anything ever made. (This is satire BTW). Ride what to got and enjoy it.

Somebody at Synergy Cycling Tech Services, I don't know who, said:

"NOTHING Zeus ever made was superior to Campy."

Unsigned, absolute statements, like this one make me giggle. (they remind me of all the racer wannabees in the 70's who laughed at Shimano & SunTour)

The archives are full of Campy/Zeus comparisons. Read them, they're interesting.

Never having used a Zeus headset, all I can say about them is that they are mighty pretty, to my eyes. Having used them for years and years I can say that Zeus cranks, bottom brackets and hubs are mighty pretty and quite reliable.

YMMV
