RIP Sheldon Brown

It's a very sad day for cycling.

I couldn't even begin to count the number of times I referenced his website when I fixed my bikes. You could pay $29.95 (or whatever the going rate is these days) for any of the "bike repair manuals" available on Amazon, or you could look on Sheldon's site for free.

Two of my project bikes would never have been completed if it hadn't been for his extremely generous one-on-one advice, zany out of the box thinking, and vast parts knowledge.

I still have one of them.

I think I'll go ride it today.

I too mourn his loss. I've spoken with and met Sheldon on a few occasions. He was a wonderful man.

He suffered from MS and as I heard it died of cardiac arrest.

RIP Sheldon.
