Comtat Cycling was established in 2009 by Adam Roberts. He wanted to offer the customer something different, something special and sell it in a more personal way.
Comtat was a name we came up with after a fabulous 2 weeks cycling in Provence. We stayed on the outskirts of Serignan Du Comtat as a base to cycle up and around the iconic Mont Ventoux. The correct pronunciation is ‘Com ta’. We fell in love with cycling in Comtat so why not name our bikes and business after this beautiful part of the world.
Is to create and sell the finest handmade bikes, components and accessories and to do it with style and a smile.
Are the opposite of mass production.
We want the best craftsmanship and the best materials as well as options for made to measure. Above all we want our bikes to be built with passion. Ticking all these boxes while maintaining our reputation for great value for money can be a difficult task sometimes, but we have maintained it.
For example, we don’t just want to know which factory is building our bikes, but want to know and be on first name terms with the frame builders, the painters etc. The result of this hard work is for you to benefit from and we will happily talk to you about why we think we are offering some of the best road bikes on the market and from some of the most respected brands including Casati, Tommasini and Sarto.
