General Information
 Spidel was not a component maker but a meta-brand created in the late 70's-early 80's by Stronglight, Simplex and a few other producers (Mafac, Atom/Maillard) in order to market some higher-end components to customers who were starting to shift to Shimano (or had been using Campagnolo for years already...).
Short-lived Spidel labeled products represented the best of French components, at the very moment this once successful industry was reaching the end of the line. Still struggling to salvage a reputation damaged by their respective low-end products during the bike boom, members of the consortium were caught by surprise by the MTB era and did not survive the 1980's.
