Sheldon Brown 1944 -2008

Sheldon passed away this week. I for one am thankful for the many questions he answered about obscure technical issues that occasionally come up while doing a repair or spec'ing an unusual part. His internet presence was omnipotent. Often customers would come in and inform us that "Sheldon said..." whatever about whatever, and I have grown to pretty much consider it gospel.

Even the Bike Snob - who has made it his stock in trade to lampoon every aspect of cycling culture - had nothing but kind words and respect this giant of cycling culture. Thanks for all that Sheldon. RIP.
