Hi All,

Currently moved to Luzern from Vancouver Canada and am looking for a high end bike shop to build up a new Nomad.

Anyone got any good shops?
I dont mind driving a bit, so long as the shop is tip top and customer service is super.

Thanks!

Live in ZH and been a longtime Santa rider. Here the place to go for Santa is BikeHub. They have rather special opening times and right now everything is different with the pandemic. Would give them a call in advance.
https://www.bikehub.ch/
Otherwise on the site of the swiss santa distribuitor, you can certainly find the closest bikeshop to you
https://www.santacruzbikes.ch/de

Biroma is also one hell of a good shop and cool crew. Actually Biroma and Bikehub used to be the same crew, so the vibe is similar, just different brands.

If you're in ZH and wanna check out some of our trails, drop me a line.

Cheers

Awesome, thanks!
Ill give em a holler when i get a chance Smile

I haven't used them myself but heard a lot of good things about bike hub and they seem to build up a lot of high end bikes if their fb page is to be believed.

People also say good things about biroma but every time I've been there it's been shut... Apparently they are proper riders haha

Thank ya kindly.
Seems the concensus is bike hub eh?
Ill def drop em a line and see whats what!

Hello one and all,

I have recently moved to Basel from Cumbria, UK.

I am looking for someone to ride with. I have been out and done the local trails that are marked on trailforks but it gets a repetitive, I know there must be a lot more sneaky local trails out there but I haven't found many yet.
Man made trails aren't really my thing. I am used to hike-a-bike's round the Lake District.
I have a van and I'm willing to travel the country wide.

I ride a Capra I like it steep and I love the tech!

I'll most likely be heading to Bern for 3 months starting in June. Going to bring my bike (Commencel Clash) along and have found a couple trails around Bern on trailforks. I'll be limited to train travel and the occasional borrowing of a company car. Keep in touch, would be great to find some like-minded people...especially if they have already found the trails!

If you don't mind pedaling, I know a nice alpine style route starting from Grindelwald. I'm currently a bit busy with moving to a new apartment, but July would work fine (the snow should finally be gone then as well...). Just let me know if you guys are interested.

Hi guys,

Anybody knows when the bike parks of Davos and Zermatt open?
For the life of me I can’t find the info on their website.

Thanks

As far as I know Zermatt allows bikers as soon as the summer lifts open - they don't have a separate bike park.
Except for the train to Gornergratt - bikes only after 4pm (in high season at least, not sure in low season)

Gornergrat still looks like a ski piste at the moment. We’ll have to wait a bit longer before any biking can be done there.

Thanks for the info.
Is there a date for the opening of the summer lift in Zermatt?

For Davos, I think I found the date: there is a week end event for the bike opening on the 25th to 27th of June. Rock the Bock it’s called.
Really hidden info If you ask me. Not sure why they make it so hard to find…
I had the same problem last year when I was trying to find the last weekend of riding.

Thanks

I think this year we're gonna have to wait for the upper trails to open, it has been snowing too much.

Do you have downhill trails in/close to Zermatt with some man-made features (jumps, drops, ...)?
