What's Cool In Road Cycling

Volagi Bikes’ Co-Founder In Coma

Volagi Bikes co-founder Robert Choi was hit by a vehicle while on his bike yesterday. He survived, but is currently in a coma in hospital. The small brand’s daily operations have been suspended until Robert is back, and his friends ask that you consider making a donation to the Go Fund Me page here: https://www.gofundme.com/RCroad2recovery. We wish Robert a fast and full recovery.

The Volagi Facebook page posted this:
“We regret to announce that yesterday evening, Robert, the backbone of our company, was involved in an accident with a motor vehicle while riding after work. He is currently in a coma at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah. Please send positive thoughts his way, send flowers, or stop by to visit. All visitors are welcome. We have also set up a Go Fund Me account for him to help offset hospital and recovery costs.

We also are sad to announce that with this accident, we will be closing our doors indefinitely. Customers who have orders placed will be happy to know we will be working this month to fulfil outstanding orders. At this time we need to focus on getting Robert back on his feet, and hopefully the bike, as soon as possible.”

If you’re not familiar with the brand, we reviewed the Volagi Liscio here.
