Thought it would be good to start a thread on this rather out-there company from Spokane Washington.

Cool! 8)
Just bought a set of similar brakes for my Merlin XLM build.
Lid, do you know what are the different connection points (1,2,3) for?

There was also an ahead model stem for sale recently on eBay...pretty weird looking stems those I have to say.

They allow you to change the leverage/pull of the brakes. It does make a change from ok to sponge-alot! The brakes are drilled to accept the older wider cables. Why? I dont know. They would also perform better on posts that are slilghtly wider apart. As far as I have seen these later items only came in this "Champagne" color.

Here is the only pic of a Machine Tech crank that I have ever seen. Popped up here recently when I make a joke about "looking for a MT crank"

I'm sure the Zeroweld came in 130 and 140mm. Mine are all 130mm.
The Zeroflex is 105mm.
