It’s official, the vacation has started. We are now in Switzerland, and I thought I’d take out the old mountain bike for a photo op. This is probably the first high end bike I purchased, and back in its day, AMP Research was top notch. It came with a travel case that checked as regular luggage, which is why it traveled to Switzerland many many years ago. At it’s best, it weighed in at about 21 pounds, making for a very light full suspension ride. I loved riding this bike until I purchased an Ellsworth Truth. Now the Amp Research shows its age with a rear end that is not particularly stable. Still, it was a great bike back in the day, and I suspect it will see a few rides here in Suisse.
