In case you haven't yet heard, our friend, colleague, and guru Sheldon Brown passed away last night from a heart attack. I never met the man, but have "known" him via the Internet for many years -- he helped me many times with technical bicycle questions, both via personal email and through his extensive web site. I was in Boston a couple of years ago, and didn't take the time to travel out to Harris Cyclery to try to meet him...now of course I wish that I had. Sheldon, you will be missed and certainly never forgotten!
Rob H. puts it most eloquently!
Did you know Sheldon had a MySpace page? I didn't!
