Meral was a small French company from La Fuye, just near Tours in the Loire valley. The company had a full range of excellently built bikes for all types of cycle sport and most were very elegant, well brazed and finished.
Spidel was created in the late 70’s-early 80’s by Stronglight, Simplex and a few other producers (Mafac, Atom/Maillard) in order to market the highest quality French components under one umbrella brand.
