1996 Comtek

This bike is not for sale. The bikes and parts we currently have for sale can be found on the MOMBAT for sale page.

Jim Compton, founder/builder of Comtek, built around 20 bicycles with most of them being suspended bikes of his own design.  Most of them featured the standard 26" mountain bike wheels but two bikes were built with 20" wheels as inspired by the 20" wheeled Moulton bicycles.  The smaller wheels are lighter and stronger than the larger wheels and will accelerate quicker.  They definitely make this bike a much quicker handling machine.  To accommodate the smaller wheels: the gearing is bumped to 56/46/34, the custom stem is 240mm long and a custom fork brace was fabricated for the long reach Dia Compe FS-E caliper brakes.
