I hope that where he's gone he's been reunited with his beloved Elswick Tour Anglais - he said that bike meant more to him than any other he's owned. It was twice stolen but recovered only once.

That is sh1t news.

I'll never forget his Chain Cleaning April Fools Gag.

I thought it a work of genius.

this guy is a legend and his websites always so informative and amusing.
so rare to come across someone so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the world of cycling.
very sad to hear of his passing.

I have just posted on the Events board an invitation to all to a Sheldon Brown memorial ride in London, April 6th. Hope to see some of you there.
