Akrigg is a legend... he's been sponsored by Mongoose for a long time too. He's the absolute embodiment of "it's the rider, not the bike." Not that Mongoose only makes *beep* bikes - they actually have some pretty nice ones, just don't go looking for them at Walmart. Watching his videos is always a good way to kill the "I need a new bike" itch. It's like having him slap me in the face and say "no, you just need to ride more, stupid!"
I'm just here to ride...

I'll extend and say that it's not just ride more, but play more. People seem to lose sight of just how fun it is riding through the woods.

It's the feeling I get from watching Sam Pilgrim - unlike some of the more polished pro rider videos, he always seems to come across like an overexcited kid who's just discovered something cool but a bit sketchy.

If you haven't seen it, his adventures on an old tricycle are particularly amusing:
