    Zeus hybrid

    Hi there! Finally made an account after weeks of just browsing the forums!
    So I bought this bike a few weeks ago from the local flea market for 60. A "Zeus Flexium" with an aluminium frame and V brakes, in white/yellow/purple.

    First of all, can any one tell me about Zeus bikes as a company? I've never heard of them, and the internet has scarce knowledge on the make.
    Secondly, judging by my rather crude pictures, is the bike worth "doing up"? I need to replace both derailleurs, and I was thinking of adding drop bars, but given my limited budget I think that'd depends on whether I can find decent second hand brifters.
    So yes, any knowledge/advice would be greatly appreciated, and I look forward to perusing the forums and commenting!
    Cheers, Dan

    Nice looking Hybrid.

    Zeus is Spanish and I believe is currently marketed by Orbea.
