Chris Akrigg - Retro All Terrain Biking
Old but new
We've been on a bit of a retro nostalgia fest here at Dirt recently with the 50to01 Dirt Diaries entry and Kathy Sessler's archive footage from Sprung 5 having us dreaming the mis-spent summers of our youth.
Chris Akrigg's latest video brings on a whole different wave of memories though as he straps on a bum bag and heads out to the hills on a retro "atb". With a long stem, wide bars and spongy grips it's a wonder he can ride the bike at all!
Well, that's not quite true. This is a very limited edition Mongoose that boasts modern xc geometry and 27.5+ wheels. Only five are being made and with Akrigg already bagsying one you better get your skates on for one of the others.

Had the best laugh putting this together, all about having fun!"
