    Athena Piccolo brake calipers for sale!

    What, you never heard of Campy Athena Piccolo brakes? Well neither have I. Hmmm, looks like Triomphe brakes to me, but no one would simply make up a name would they?

    Piccolo refers to the depth (drop) of the calipers. I forget where the name comes from now, but IIRC it was used to describe what are now known as "short drop" calipers (like the ones in the link). I still have the order form for a frame I got made to measure in 1991, and brake depth is stated simply as "piccolo".
