🐎 NEW SANTAFIXIE WILD BIKES - Savage
The beginnings of Miche go back to hard times, specifically in the post-war period after the First World War. It was then, in 1919, when the Michelin family decided to open a small business dedicated to the manufacture of components and bicycles. Ferdinando Michelin, specifically, was the one who took the reins of the business from the beginning.
Miche's facilities are currently located in the same street where Fernandino started to manufacture the first Miche components. The design and, above all, the quality of Miche products have been, from the very beginning, immovable values for the Italian company. When a component leaves their factory, they never want to see it there again.
A proliferating division
In 1963 Fernandino Michelin handed over 50% of Miche to each of his sons. Italo kept the component part, and Tideo the bicycle part, which he renamed Stella Veneta. Both did well, although Tideo's death led to the sale of the bicycle division. Tideo did well, so well that the Michelin brand felt slightly threatened when Miche entered the French market. The agreement not to be hindered by the coincidence of the name was to sign an agreement that they would never make bicycle tyres.
Miche used to manufacture components for other Italian brands such as Campagnolo, Gipiemme or Pinarello, until these brands started to copy Miche's products. Despite this, Miche and other Italian manufacturers are part of La Confederazione Nazionale dell'Artigianato, an association of brands that jointly promote and protect the network of Italian manufacturers and small businesses, which make things the artisan way, following traditions.
