I had started this thread in the KTM section, but as the forum now has a dedicated eMTB section, it seems more relevant here. I have visited Lauterbrunnen more times than I care to remember, but last year saw my first trip there taking an eMTB. There was a specific reason for taking the bike then, which can be found here http://www.pedelecs.co.uk/news/giving/ but this years trip is just to get some more fun miles put in, whilst enjoying some stunning scenery. I pretty much carry the kitchen sink with me when out riding and given the distance away from home, along with potentially remote terrain, I'm taking not only the kitchen sink, I'm taking the whole kitchen! As well as the kit shown here which tucks neatly away into my superb CamelBak, there is also money, a foil blanket, front light and spare Bosch battery. I have been struggling to decide which bike to actually take with me this year, but after much thought, I am taking the full suspension KTM Lycan again. I would have taken the hardtail KTM Macina Race, but I don't think that I could handle two weeks of using SRAM! The same as last year, the bike has been fully stripped and serviced, brake fluid has been replaced with fresh fluid, a new chain and front sprocket has gone on, new organic brake pads fitted, wheel bearings replaced, spokes tensioned and wheels trued, plus all of the usual service adjustments have been carried out. Given the harsh conditions and use that my bikes get put through, I'm always amazed at just how well that they scrub up. I really could never see me switching to any other brand of bike, ever again. Roll on Swiss mountains.
