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.

Chris Akrigg THE MAURICE.0 from chris akrigg on Vimeo.'s founder and first editor, nowadays to be found riding a spreadsheet. Tony's journey in cycling media started in 1997 as production editor and then deputy editor of Total Bike, acting editor of Total Mountain Bike and then seven years as editor of Cycling Plus. He launched his first cycling website - the Cycling Plus Forum at the turn of the century. In 2006 he left C+ to head up the launch team for Bike Radar which he edited until 2008, when he co-launched the multi-award winning - finally handing on the reins in 2021 to Jack Sexty. His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes, though he'd like to own a carbon bike one day.
