Finally the weather has changed, so we can start getting stuck in to our training and club rides. The winter bike can be put away and the carbon wheels can come out to play. It's about time as we can't remember a worse winter for cycling.
Tourmalet review: Cycling Plus gave our Tourmalet bike 9/10 in the June Edition of the magazine. They said 'the ride is an absolute treat' and that its' 'light enough for racing and comfortable enough for long distance sportive riding too.' The issue also includes a complete bike buyers guide so well worth the purchase.
Stock situation: We have been caught out a little with a pre-season rush, as thanks to some great reviews, our stock is very much depleted. Don't worry though, we will have more to offer in about 6 weeks. If you can't see what you're looking for and you can't wait then drop us an email as we have quite a few ex -demo bikes back from the magazines that we could do for a reduced price.
The name: We are often asked about the name, Comtat is small series of small French villages in Vaucluse. A small group of us went on our first cycling holiday trip and stayed in Serignan Du Comtat. It was situated about 10km's from the mighty Ventoux. The correct pronunciation is 'Comta' but we say 'Comtat'. We had such a great time staying in this village that we decided to pay homage to it by naming our club and then our bike brand after it. A few people have said that as our brand is British we should have chosen a British name, well Wandsworth didn't sound right, so Comtat it is.
Bike Box hire: We now hire out bike pods. We have 5 Polaris bike pods that are only 5 quid a day to hire and 2 bike box alan hardcases for 8 pound a day. In order that you can collect and return outside office hours, pick up, for your convenience, is from a private address in Putney, South London.
Test bikes: We are working on offering test bikes for you to ride before you make a decision on which bike to go for. We will keep you informed on how this will work.
