Exellent vid, back in 2000 when I first started riding for this team out of desperation I used to do trials on my DH bike until my small Zaskar was finally built.
Ahh... the days of Hans Ray and Zaskar trials bikes.
Pretty sure i saw about this guy in an old MBUK, he got injured riding his mountainbike so took up road riding to help his recovery time. Then rather than buy a new trials bike he just welded gussets onto his road bike.....id rather see chris akrigg brakeless and fully rigid pulling of ridiculous lines than a loke hopping a road bike any day of then week though
These are fixed gear singlespeed bikes, the idea of playing around on a bike started on these things long before the new mountain bike designs. I think they're amazing, search 'fixed gear ss' on youtube you will find the coolest retro bikes around.
