Re: Are there any mandatory items for bicycles (Bell/reflectors etc.)?

I know you need the vignette but anything else mandated?

About to buy a new bike in UK before coming out and these are the first things I usually take off! Should I leave them on for Switzerland?

Thanks
Same as U.K. regs (more or less).

i.e.

Lamps (front and rear). Can be removable. Must be visible at 100m.
Pedal reflectors required (except if you have "racing pedals").
Front and rear reflectors.
Bicycles weighing more than 11Kg need a bell.
Front and rear working brakes.
Apparently you need a lock, too.

You'll find the regulations here, in German
