The world of Cycling loses one of it’s favourites…

February 5th, 2008

Independent minded.
A person with a sense of humor.
Somebody who doesn’t take himself too seriously.

Thats is how Sheldon Brown described himself and all of you familiar with his site will attest to that fact, it’s probably how most bike enthusiasts would like to be remembered. Over the years we have all come to rely on Sheldon and his encyclopedia of bike knowledge, the SeatPost chart has saved me much time and effort.

So, now he’s gone to a place where there are no cars and just miles of endless flowing singletrack weaving among the clouds, wonder if he’ll show god how to roll a steel beed tire for tight packing !!

Thanks for everything mr Brown…

    A real loss to cycling, I concur about the seatpost chart, nothing else like it on the web. Hope he’s rolling down an endless singletrack somewhere, Igor shining in the sun.
