I'm gonna sell this bike, but as it seems that the MTB Cycletech brand is totally unknown outside of Switzerland, I just want to post some pictures here beforehand for everybody to discover Swiss design and precision at its finest.
MTB Cycletech is a Swiss company based in Bern, designing mainly expensive touring and mountain bikes. Hope you enjoy!

really smart looking bike you have there! looks well thought out, and great details, right down to that andale tubing decal!


Details are amazing! The decal is hot, as is the titanium seatpost clamp. And so are the braze-ons and the welds...

Swiss love .

Very nice tourer. Looks like it could go anywhere and climb anything (with different racks). That headset is interesting looking?,-didn't know DT made headsets. How do you like those V-brakes and the levels? Are they awkward form the hoods? ...I am converting a mtb to drop bars w/barcons with those levers in the spring and just curious. Thanks for sharing!

Barcons and brakes


With v-brake specific drop levers, braking is very efficient. Actually, I'm converting every bike I get with drop bar, so I'm refining what I like and don't like over time.

Those Cane Creek v-brake levers are sturdy and responsive, but way too bulky to my liking. Better suited for really big hands, I guess. There's not a lot of choice tho, if you don't want to use the Travel Agent thingy.

Concerning barcon shifters, I'm in total love with them. I put them everywhere, from road bikes to mtb's. Shifting is so fast. You can sweep through your entire cassette in no time. Really great! And nothing awkward as far as I can say. They're really easy to grab when the need arises.

Actually, I can't find DT headsets to be sold separately, but as it is written DT Swiss on that specific headset, there's nothing I can do but believe the facts.
