Sheldon Brown, the world-renowned resource for all things bike-related, passed away on Sunday night.  He was 63. Brown authored the highly popular website http://sheldonbrown.com, was the tech guru of Harris Cyclery in greater Boston,  and often helped out many cyclists via helpful answers to tech questions on message boards.  Brown touched many ‘crossers lives, via his vast knowledge and articles on topics such as cantilever brake setup, gear ratios, and wheel building, and also by supplying hard-to-find parts for the garage ‘cross project. He was truly passionate about all things bikes, and always had the biggest smile at bike swaps.

We’ll miss you Sheldon!
