Goodbye Sheldon


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!

*shock*

I knew he was in poor health, but that's still a shock to learn. He will be sorely sorely missed.

Very sad news indeed. Sheldon will be missed by many who never had the opportunity to meet him, but benefited from his knowledge.
