Miche road components

In our recent post about road bike drop bar shifters, reader Kraytwin makes a great point - Miche is out there selling what looks like complete component groups. However, if you scrutinize the pictures on their web site, it appears that they use Campagnolo 11 speed and 10 speed shifters to anchor those gruppos. I don't know too much about them, and there's not too much about them written in English on the web. I do know that the last time I was shopping for a replacement cassette for my 9 speed Campy bike, their steel 'pignone' were the best deal. Anyone out there using their other stuff?

(BTW, pignone means gears and should not be confused with Pignoni, the Baroque painter who liked his women like he liked his wine - full bodied)
