It feels shitty to hear this is how it all went down. I thought something like this was what happened when I first heard about them closing shop.
And I will most definitely boycott any business venture he is involved in.

Former employees should get legal advice to see if they can do a class action suit against Pollack, and try to recover the expenses that they got stuck with.

This story is true, and Pollack is a shady mofo, never liked the guy.

The article is journalism, even if its a mountain bike blog. There are a lot of legal protections for journalism.

Gotta give the OP props for daring to tell the story. We need more people like him.

Karma will come around , Great article by Cam! Very true to the story. Very sad for the employees! A start from Proctor and Gamble and going into the Bike industry we should have known!
