    Glad he is aback to riding like that after the scary fall that messed him up bad. Hell of a rider if I only had a quarter of his skill I would be super happy with my riding.

    Chris Akrigg - five

    Breaking his leg (twice) doesn't seem to have made him risk averse...

    He's my absolute favorite rider putting out web edits.

    That was a really cool video. I love Akrigg's videos. Of course, the only problem is now that Mongoose has showed me it's the rider, not the bike, I no longer feel the need to buy a new bike :-) (actually that commuter looked pretty cool, I wouldn't mind having one of those to add to the stable).

    Amazing, just amazing. Guess as said, ends the what size wheels argument, if you've got the skill, whatever you want.

    I saw that video a couple of days ago!

    That guy knows the proper way to climb switchbacks, commute with a fixie and has some SERIOUS control of the bike. Amazing rider know doubt, real fun video!

    Watch it again - I know he rides fixed, but that bike ain't fixed.

    Otherwise, I agree!

    That's the freewheel version of the fixed gear bike he used in his previous fixie movie.

    The guys were talking about this vid on the trail yesterday. Holy smokes unreal! Easily my fav video of all time. Super creative and the riding was on point. Such rad lines. 3:10 really stoked me out.
