    He will be missed. Pretty much everything I know about bicycles, I learned from his free handouts of cosmic wisdom.

    He was everyone's bicycle mentor. He even took the time to reply to an email of mine several years ago.
    Godspeed Sheldon.

    That was a sad day for all bicycle lovers everywhere. The man was an icon within the community and he will be truly missed. I've been on his site more times than I can count, if you couldn't find it there, you probably didn't need it anyway.
  8. Wow, I fell like I've lost a friend. He was a long-distance hero to all of us in the cycling world. He was one of a kind, and I'll miss his sage advice and humor.

    God bless.

    Yes , a true loss.
    Never met Him personally but He did help me lace my first wheel.
    Anyone who has a minute might consider dropping by his site .
    As a sign of respect and to show his friends and family that the thousands of hours he dedicated to the cycling community were endeed appreciated and a worthwhile endevour.

    Thankfully, some of his wisdom will live on at his website.
  12. I seen his name but I didn't get the connection. I bet everyone here has looked at his website at one time or another.
    I hope that site lives on.

    I spent a lot of time on his site just reading about brakes. What an awesome guy, looks like someone who would be fun to hang out with.

    Yep, great guy. He actually took the time to reply to a crazy question I had about the dimensions of my bottom bracket. Great website, and yes, it would be really cool to hang out with him. There are going to be tribute rides in various cities, including Europe, for him.

    I was on a website this morning thinking about posting a message, but didn't know what to say. I guess "I'll miss him" is enough. :smile:
