You may not have invented the wheel, but you do a great job explaining it to the chimps among us, like me. Most of what I know about how the systems on bikes work came from reading and re-reading your pages. Within a few months I went from not even knowing how to take a chain off to having the confidence to assemble a bike starting with a bare frame. Your articles on fixed gear riding fascinated me and encouraged me to try it. Not only have your writings helped me learn, they have also encouraged me to experiment. I seldom use stock cassettes. Following your guidance, I roll my own to obtain exactly the gearing I want. You have enriched and inpired my life as a cyclist.
Thank you for your contribution to the knowledge base of cyclists throughout the world.
