Sheldon Brown, RIP

(Image from

Sheldon Brown died of a massive heart attack last night, according to his spouse, Harriet. We've had occasional correspondence, and I've always appreciated Sheldon's good humor, wit, and vast knowledge of nearly all things related to cycling. We've lost one of the greats.

Yep, I know I've used his pages many times to educate myself. They're an invaluable resource and you could contact Sheldon himself and get a response, no mean feat considering the volume of traffic to his pages and the fact that he was just one man!

He was also a well respected and fairly regular contributor to a few cycling newsgroups (anyone else remember Usenet? It's still there!)

My thoughts go to his family and friends.
