All the parts for my bike came from the shop Sheldon Brown worked at, this is really sad – a maker writes in –
This is primarily a piece of sad news and secondarily a link to an awesome maker’s site. Sheldon Brown recently passed away due to a heart attack. Sheldon has been famous and admired by cycling enthusiasts all over the world for his cheerful, helpful personality, his willingness to spread his knowledge, his sense of humor and his amazing site full of bicycle bodging / modding / making / maintaining information. He’ll be sorely missed. I feel that many makers will know of Sheldon and his website already and those who do not would find his site tremendously useful.
