meanwhile in a san jose courthouse: volagi vs specialized

(via bicycle retailer)
so my dad told me about this one and i thought it was really really interesting since it's pretty close to home. robert choi is a former specialized employee who basically innovated the industry with the utilization of LED lights for night riding. he worked for them and eventually went on to create volagi bikes base in the north bay. anyway, he and his business partner barley forsman got sued by specialized for breaching their contracts while under employment. choi was found guilty and was ordered to pay specialized $1. no you read that right, one united states dollar. on volagi's twitter, i believe that they're gathering 100 pennies with 100 cyclists riding down to morgan hill to pay the debt. that sounds like a gangsta move by choi. what a badass.
