In Memory of Sheldon Brown

I never met Sheldon Brown, but I learned a great deal from him.

Sheldon developed a website,, that had an incredible amount of technical information about bicycles and cycling. If I Googled for some information about one of my bikes, I often ended up consulting his site.

Sheldon passed away on Sunday, February 3, 2008, reportedly of a massive heart attack. May he rest in peace. [ via spare cycles and ]
