February 4, 2013 marks the 5th anniversary of the passing of Sheldon Brown, founder of sheldonbrown.com and still the author of most material on the site.
As a friend of Sheldon’s once said, “After they made him, they threw away the mold.” He was unique in his knowledge of bicycles, his ability to put that information clearly into writing, his willingness to share, and his sense of humor.
We mourn his loss, and miss him.
We continue to do our best to expand and update the site, though we regret that we can never match his style!
