In Memory Of Sheldon Brown

Sheldon Brown recently passed away on February 3rd at the age of 63 from a heart attack. He is known as the "bicycle mechanic" guru with a 2,000 page website on almost every cycling topic. Check out and bookmark http://www.sheldonbrown.com/. He also provided tech-geek and creative solutions, one-on-one, to cyclists via e-mail, about 200 per day. By this, he changed the world.

For more information, check out the Harris Cyclery website where Sheldon was employed.

As many people from around the world have blogged, the best way to honor Sheldon is to ride your bike and to use your own knowledge to help someone else be a better rider. That is his legacy, and we can all keep it alive.

I thought, in honor of Sheldon Brown, I'd do a ride in his kit.
