Video: Trials rider Chris Akrigg gives it some fixed gear welly in Barcelona
Akrigg rides fixed for a second time … first go wasn't a fluke then...

Trials rider Chris Akrigg has taken his Mongoose Maruice fixed bike to Barcelona with predictably spectacular results mainy involving riding up the sides of unfeasibly steep things - something he showcased in his first vid riding across the Westbury White Horse.

That was the Mongoose sponsored trials rider's first go at riding fixed this is his second and was shot on a recent trip to Barcelona. Two goes in and as far as we can see he is setting the bar in terms of what can be done on a 700c fixed bike… if you don't believe us watch the vid below and then ponder about what he might be capable of third time out.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
