    any predictions how high it goes?

    I smiled when I read in the description

    "He changed the pedals to one side SPD and one side quill. "

    definitely Sheldon.

    Indeed. Things aren't quite the same without him. Every now and then I still get a moment where I and the people I know can't figure something out, and I suddenly realize that I can e-mail him... but then I realize that I can't anymore.

    As future technology will hit the market and Sheldon will not be around to teach us, we will be missing him even more.

    Then I would surmise that we will need to investigate innovations that come down the road. And share, via publication, what we find. Perhaps none of us singularly have the genius-component that Sheldon was born with - but, as a collective, we can communicate with each other our findings.

    The real key that Sheldon had (has) was the communications. Sheldon could draw a visual diagram in our heads with his words. He was able to make clear verbally (and written) what we were trying to grasp. THAT is a gift. I would suggest that we work to polish our skills in this area. Practice writing, prose, and visual styling in our sentence structure. In simple terms: Try to paint a picture with words.

    I'm sure he would have cheered us on. This isn't only about bicycle-mechanics - it's about sharing freely and co-existence. These are things Sheldon also gave a flying about. Getting along and avoiding confusion.

    Ride In Peace, Sheldon. I'll do my best to carry on for the next generations.
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    Beautiful bike. It seems like a pretty tight wheelbase for a tour/sport model. Gorgeous, though.

    I dunno. There is enough clearance between the rear tire and the seat tube to fit full coverage fenders with space left over so the wheelbase can't be that short.
