I saw mach 1 calipers on an old bianchi road bike the other day.
Does anyone know anything about them. Like-who made them?

I think they were an old Suntour component. I had some Suntour Cyclone Mach 2 components on one of my bikes in the mid 80s. They were mid level components. It was a beautifully finished lightweight component group. It was I think one of their earlier designs at an aerodynamic group. They looked and worked great. I think they were ahead of their time!!!

I wish Suntour was still around. Yes I know they make some cheap MTB stuff in the new reincarnation but that does not count. I would have loved to see what their Supurbe group could have evolved into if they were still around. It would be nice to have a 3rd company in the mix other than Campy and Shimano.
