Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

zeus track wheels

i just got a set of 70's zeus track wheels, high flange laced to super champion tubular rims. it came with a cog and lockring, and one tire glued on. i was wondering what the value of these might be? the wheels are really light, the back only having a 28 spokes and the front 24. thanks!

or search the completed listings and look at the pair that just sold. zeus hubs are awesome, look and (assumingly) feel much like the oldish campy record pistas (non "sheriff star") however, they do not have hardly the same name recognition so they are probably not worth a whole lot.

Nuevo Record and Super Record Oldish hubs.

CRecord - Sheriff Star

they are good hubs made by Zeus in Spain. They was the only company that gave a good run that wasn't from Italy. They made hubs,cranks,stem,frames lugs,fork crown,,,seat also.

I've actually seen a whole frame being ridden around by one of the messengers out here. Guy's got a matching jersey, too...

if you put track/messenger/fixed in the ebay title they're probably worth 4x the value of the equivalent road wheel, or the value of the same wheel with the same title in 1.5 years. so basically, they're worth a lot more than they're worth. sell now.

I'd say if you payed about 60 dollars then you got a great deal.
