Brand Information(click to expand)
 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...).
