Let's Go Giants...

Only a day after New Yorkers celebrated their team's NFL upset, our neighbors in Boston mourned a second loss with the passing of iconic cycling curmudgeon, Sheldon Brown.

More old school than Biopace.
1944-2008

From one of the many written eulogies around the world:

This is quite a loss to the world of cycling. Sheldon Brown helped cycling enthusiasts through his sort of ad-hoc online compendium of bicycle information, from the basic to the esoteric. Whether he informed or irritated, Sheldon's verbosity and hideous-but-functional site design have left a broadly-received imprint.
