Chris Akrigg new video
Isn’t the point of all these videos to show something silly being done on an inappropriate bike? It’s no dafter than Martyn Ashton’s Road Bike Party.
Exactly the example I was about to post!
Yeah, I reckon lots of folks don’t like it cos it highlights their lack of skillz (me included, obviously!) on an appropriate bike, never mind a bike that is considered daft for such tracks.Posted 6 months agochipsngravyMember
Guys got skills. But I’m another one that can’t get my head around the Mongoose / CSG sponsorship. I have the same response when I see Greg Illingworth boosting his Mongoose (Ted James) BMX around the bowl at the Huntington Beach Vans comp.
There’s no doubt the Mongoose team is rich and deep with credible talent, even the TM Leigh Ramsdell is a dude. But why make such naff bikes? Do the Mongoose designers consult their riders? Does Mongoose sell more bikes due to having such an awesome team, surely the average mongoose buyer doesn’t have a clue how good or even who these team riders are. Why do such good riders ride for them? If I was as rad as Ben Wallace I’d be embarrassed to ride for Mongoose (he rides a rebadged Laird Frame). A very peculiar brand indeed. Such rich heritage ruined in the pursuit a selling high volumes of naff bikes. Same could be said for GT, another CSG brand.Posted 6 months agoian martinSubscriber
I had a mongoose 2005 teocali super, it was my 1St full suspension bike and it was err super!
The suspension worked really well, was pretty light and won bike of the year in MBR (I might have the wrong mag it did win an award).
The 2017 Teocali still looks like a good bike.Posted 6 months agopatonMember

I would rather watch Dave Jenvey
He just nailed the third and fourth stepped drop-offs at Chicksands.
It was tenser than a tension-strap tightened past ten. Still feel guilty laughing at the originalPosted 6 months ago
face-plantattempt. Got to hand it to him, he has cojones to push through the fear. That’s what makes it so watchable for me, the unflinching determination and (unavoidable) self-deprecation go hand in hand! Just hope he doesn’t mess himself up badly with the fear/over-reaching.
