That looks perfect! Depends what trails your riding, but you’ll have a hoot on that.
Weather should be fine. It’s been scorching here in Switzerland for a while now, but today it went from 35C at 2pm to 15C at 8pm. A spectacular shift. Also pissing it down. But it’ll clear up over Saturday and sunny again Sunday.
Have fun, went for the first time this year, caused me to buy a new bike but my christ it was great fun.

LOL at the idea that that bike might not be enough for the alps 😀
I do know what you mean about breaking stuff though. The casualty list from my one week trip recently:
One Easton Haven Carrbon rear wheel (broke several spokes)Posted 6 years ago
One pair of Point One Racing Podium Pedals (disintegrated the bearings)
One set of shimano brake pads (melted them, literally)
One gear cable snapped
One saddle trashed in a small off
Boiled both my brakesTroutWrestlerMember
I managed to ride for 5 weeks this summer on my Scott Gambler with the only maintenance required being some changes of brake pads. Not even a puncture, and the 2.7″ Blue Groove and the 2.5″ Nevegal lasted the summer too.
I guess bike longevity comes down to luck…Posted 6 years ago

Cheers stw collective!Posted 6 years ago
I am off to play morzine and les gets next week. The route down from The top of the lift at the French/Swiss border down into switzerland, is it hardcore downhill with jumps? Comparing it to the linderette runs, blue, red or green like?
Also last request for advice, scintered or organic pads ? Have heard arguments for both, what’s the collective advice
