He will most certainly be missed, not only for his incredible wealth of information, but for the way that he was able to unite all kinds of cyclists. I don't even know how many times he's answered my questions on bikeforums.
RIP Sheldon. I learned a lot from reading up on his site. I was such a noob getting into fixed gears and didnt really know anything at all. Thanks to Sheldon's site. He has really helped out a lot of people.
