I did long research about the origin of a bike I got from my uncle some 10 years ago but could not find any information on the web. The bike was equipped with French equipment (Sachs-Huret derailleurs, Maillard hubs, and Mavic rims etc) and its frame is made by Méral.

I always wondered who the manufacturer is (i.e. if the company still exists, where it resided, what kind of frames they built, etc). What I found out using your mailing list archive is that it was a French manufacturer that seems to have gone bankrupt and merged into a company named Sedac-Meral that today produces bedframes! I also found out that there was a team called RMO-Méral-Mavic that started at Tour de France in the 1980’s. Does anyone have additional information (or ownes a Méral, too)?
