R.I.P. Sheldon Brown.

The cycling world has lost a great ambassador. Noted internet cycling guru Sheldon Brown recently passed away at 63. A veritable font of knowledge, Brown could, and would, quote arcane cycling information such as the seatpost diameter of a 60's Carlton commuter or the proper BB spindle length needed for a fixed gear conversion on a late 70's Gitane road bike. His personal website at http://sheldonbrown.com/home.html will provide you with hours of cycling related reading. Rest in peace...

May he rest in peace.

I can't describe how many times I've used his site as a reference during my tinkerings.
