I think Robergel was French. 70's era PX-10s and other French bikes usually had Robergel "Trois Etoile" (Three Stars) spokes.

Hello,

It seems that old bike manufacturing companies sometimes fade away with time... whatever happened to spoke manufacturers such as Torrington (England) and Robergel (?Germany?)

Were either acquired by current current bike spoke manufacturers such as DT Swiss or Wheelsmith?
