sheldonbrown.com shortcuts
 
My Website has been growing since December 1995, and has become quite large. As a result, it is sometimes challenging to navigate it.

Generally the best place to start is http://sheldonbrown.com/glossary or http://sheldonbrown.com/articles

But I have also created a number of shortcut links. Put any of these after: http://sheldonbrown.com/ and you will have a good chance of finding what you’re looking for. Note that the filename must be lower case, and there are never any blank spaces. I often use hyphens (-) to separate words, generally don't use underscores (_).

With most browsers you don't need to type the "http://" part.

Nobody can remember all of these, but my intent is to make it easy to “guess” the url you’re looking for. Here are some of them:

Sheldon is a god amongst men.

Hows everything going with your medical condition?

Wow. Thanks again Sheldon for all you do!

linux_author 12-14-06 03:49 PM

- tks!

- btw, i just used your site yesterday for researching some singlespeed info; now my chainline is straight, drivetrain is smooth, and ride is perfect!

:-)

If it weren't for Sheldon Brown, I would have always thought 'fixed' meant 'repaired'

and it googles beautifully too, like this:

"search term" site:sheldonbrown.com

example:

cassette cog spacing site:sheldonbrown.com

or

pedal reverse thread site:sheldonbrown.com

the flat out best info on the web. There is far more gratitude, thanks and appreciation out here than you could know.

East Hill 12-14-06 04:01 PM

I think that Sheldon Brown deserves a GOLD star!

Thank you very much for all that invaluable information.

Serendipper 12-14-06 04:39 PM

Use the "health" shortcut in the list Sheldon provided:

TallRider 12-14-06 05:14 PM

Sheldon's going in tomorrow for surgery to take a biopsy from his biceps muscle, to be used for more testing.

Air 12-14-06 05:42 PM

Good thoughts Sheldon!!

Stick note please

FlatFender 12-15-06 04:07 PM

According to the Health page he had surgery today.

Best Wishes.

cascade168 12-15-06 05:03 PM

Dictionaries should have Sheldon's picture next to the word "prolific". What a guy ;-)

Sheldon, I hope that if you see this you are in good health and having Happy Holidays!

Cheers!

Sheldon, I noticed this being implemented a couple months ago, and it's a very useful and thoughtful feature. I dare say you are an expert on designing web sites for technically-minded people, as well as bikes :)

I see that you are having surgery today. Best wishes for a quick recovery, and for a good resolution to your current health issues.

wroomwroomoops 12-15-06 06:59 PM

The surgery for the muscle tissue sample should have been today, according to Sheldon's journal.
Good luck with the results of the biopsy! Which will be in a bit later, I guess. Let's hope it's something curable, and that Sheldon will be able to pedal away as soon as possible.

Lots of thanks for that one. It's a great page. It's also nice that one doesn't have to look it up when somebody asks for a wheelbuilding tutorial. I can just say sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild off the top of my head:)

Sheldon, you're truly wonderful. Bike royalty as far as I'm concerned.

Chuckie

Katzenjammer 12-17-06 08:59 AM

Sheldon, you've done *all that* in fewer than *twelve* years?!? Christ on a bicycle!

miamijim 12-17-06 02:35 PM

You reorganized but did you fix all the errors?
