Zeus Cyclery Corp. was an importer of European cycles and components based in New York City, USA. It was possibly founded in around 1975.

As you might have guessed, it primarily imported Zeus components, but it also handled a plethora of other brands, including Roto. Its main area of specialisation was the road bike market.

I have a feeling that Zeus Cyclery Corp. disappeared some time in the late 1980s. I might guess that it was one of the many victims of that period's tectonic shift from road bikes to mountain bikes. In the bike shop that I worked in, about 80% of the bikes that we sold in 1980 had drop handlebars. By 1995 the proprtion was less than 10%.

But then, whatever goes around comes around.
