Établissements Caminade was run by Pierre Caminade and was based at Bois-Colombes near Paris.

The company was something of an innovator in the 1930s. Amongst its wackier products were the ‘Caminargent’ bike with an aluminium frame with octagonal tubes and at least two different Caminade Rectiligne derailleur systems. These followed the pattern set by Terrot and Audouard almost three decades earlier, in that the chain stayed straight and the gear was changed by moving the rear sprockets laterally.
