Further blurring the lines between fixed gear, BMX, and trials riding, the newest video from Chris Akrigg will leave you scratching your head. The six-time National BikeTrial Champion & Mongoose MTN team rider says it best on his site, that he will ride anything, even if it is as mental as riding a bike with no way of slowing down in the woods and over huge boulders.
Chris wrote on the intro that, “A little while ago i thought it would be a good idea to put a freewheel on my fixie. I’d miss placed the brakes so i had to run it without, this wasn’t a good idea as i ended up rapped myself round a tree. Anyway, i did manage to get a bit of footage before injury then bad weather stopped play. It is what it is, whatever that is! A bit of fun on a 700c…”
A bit of fun on a 700c indeed.
