This needs to be a sticky, please! Several of us, and that's a HUGE understatement, use Sheldon's site frequently.

This deserves a sticky.

Sheldon, your website is endlessly valuable to cyclists of every experience level and interest. And as a web designer, I can simply say I'm speachless at all of the work you've put into SheldonBrown.com

Get better soon Sheldon!

Your site was the big impetus behind my recent fixed conversion build (and first bike build) and I consistently referred to it as the build progressed. I love that bike like crazy, and building it was so much fun and a great learning experience to boot. THANK YOU for the great info and for being such an all around positive force in cycling.

Would a shortcut to sanjos8 be too commercial? I am forever googling to that page so I can send it to people.

I don't think there is any cyclist on the internet that doesn't benefit from your webpage.

Rock on, Sheldon!

Remarkable. I unfortunately don't build wheels too often. But when I do I use Sheldon's wheelbuilding as a reference and the come out perfectly trued and tensioned everytime.

Sheldon...your wonderful work inspired me to get off my A$$ and get back into bikes. I grew up next door to Harris when it was on the "south" side of the street by the Movie theatre. 30+ years later I was back at my parents house. No bike...except my Dad's original 1930 Raliegh sport he bought from Ben Olken at the BX....that many years ago. Being frisky and motivated by Sheldon's love of the bike, I put air in the original tyres and rode the 9 miles to the new shop on the North side of the street. Good for them, they were busy. Sonny was there. Busy which was good for all LBSs. Opted to not ask about Sheldon but know he would have loved to see a 75+ year old bike just rode on over....on original tyres!

Best wishes Sheldon. We are thinking of you and hope you are ready when the snow melts....if it ever comes!

Cheers!

Sheldon,

Your work helped me get back into bikes when I was low on cash and could only afford fixer-uppers.

Getting back on bikes helped me lose 80 pounds and the prescription drugs I was using to lower my blood pressure.

You might say that you saved my life!

Best wishes, Sheldon. You are truly an inspiration.

Your site is awesome. But it needs more pictures of you with your Eagle helmet! And more cowbell!

In your honor I now only refer to "derailers."

I can see the day that people start referring to repair manuals as a 'Sheldon Brown'.

Scenario: "I don't remember how to adjust my high limit screw on my RD, let me go grab my 'Sheldon Brown' so I can learn everything I need to know."
