Speaking of Zero, I recently acquired a 'Hermann' prototype stem which is an awesomely stylish chunk of machining, and a set of Grey Components V brakes from the same seller.

Other recent goodies include some custom Campag Record OR parts; the rear mech sports an engraved badge and the thumbshifters are polished silver with machined caps. Lush!



Ooooo, show me pics of the Grey V brakes, my old friend Andy Grey designed them and i haven't seen a set since Bitd.

You knew the fella who designed/made them, cool :)

Unfortunately I'm unable to do photo's (don't ask why :facepalm: ).
They were bought from our man manitou916, so I'll see if he still has some pic's of 'em, along with the stem.

Yeah, he was head mechanic at Sensible Bike company which was my LBS.
I do have a NOS gold anno Grey Jockey wheel. He did the V brakes, Headlocks and Jockeys but ran out of money so sold out to Zero Compoinents.
On an aside, apart from Mtb racing, his other passion was circuit racing his 2CV.

**Edit** Not Zero components but Zoobits :facepalm:
