Steve caught up with mountain bike trials legend Chris Akrigg to check out his new fully custom GT Force GT-E Amp and film a bike check. Steve recently tried to keep up with Chris on his local trails (if you could call them that?🤷‍♂️) and we wondered if he has made any major modifications or dropped a frame size to suit his style of riding. - 🔍 Bike Spec / Parts list 👇 Bike Spec List: 🔘 Frame: 2021 GT Force GT-E Amp - Large 🔘 Rear Suspension: EXT Storia LOK 🔘 Front Suspension: EXT Era - 150mm 🔘 Wheelset: Industry Nine Enduro 305 (29F+R) 🔘 Tyres: Schwalbe Magic Mary (F+R) 🔘 Brakes: Shimano XT 🔘 Rotors: Shimano XT 200mm 🔘 Handlebars: Renthal Fatbar 35 🔘 Stem: Renthal Apex 50mm 🔘 Headset: FSA 🔘 Grips: Renthal Push-On Ultra Tacky 🔘 Shifters: Shimano XT 🔘 Crankset: Shimano FC-EM600, (165mm) 🔘 Pedals: Shimano XT PD-M8140 🔘 Chain: Shimano XT 🔘 Cassette: Shimano XT 🔘 Rear Mech: Shimano XT 🔘 Seatpost: PRO Koryak 🔘 Saddle: PRO 🔘 Motor: Shimano EP8 🔘 Battery: Shimano STEPS BT-E8035, 504Wh Subscribe to EMBN: http://embn.me/subscribenow Pick up official EMBN merch: https://embn.me/I6 Follow us on Instagram or Facebook! @emountainbikenetwork Sign up to the EMBN newsletter: https://embn.me/newsletter Please submit your content to our uploader: https://upload.embn.com/ we love to check out what you have been up to and may feature it on the show!
