    Sheldon's site is great and he's answered a few dumb emails from me (will this old Japanese thingy go together with this old Italian thingy). Sheldon rocks.
    Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, don't fail me now.

    I've been back into cycling for only 5 or 6 months now so every once in a while I come across a term I don't recognize -- off to Sheldon's Glossary I go.

    It ain't the prettiest place to look at by any stretch, but it's one of the more useful websites I've ever seen.

    He sounds like a great guy. I visited his site and found his bike information to be great, but, even more important to me, I finally found someone whose musical tastes are very kindred to my own...which is pretty rare.

    It's a site I'll visit often in the future, so you can count me in as a Sheldon Brown fanboy.

    his website really helped me out as a newbie ... answered a lot of questions i was having trouble finding answers to elsewhere ... love how he lays out the pros and cons so that you can decide what's best for your situation

    That's quite a few people already! According to Wikipedia:

    "Sheldon Brown is an American football cornerback who currently plays for the Philadelphia Eagles. He was 2nd round draft pick of the 2002 NFL Draft out of the University of South Carolina."

    Hot Darn! I didn't know he was a Pro Football Player too ha ha! ;-)

    Maybe we should start a new Wikipedia entry... "Sheldon Brown is the next president of the USA, and he knows a lot about bikes too."

    I had a rear wheel on my touring bike that was having problems with broken spokes during my cross USA tour in 2001. I'm 6'1", 160 pounds, so it's not like I'm a clydesdale. I had it rebuilt in Chicago half way through the tour, but I was still having problems by the time I got to PA and NY.

    When I reached my final destination of Boston, Sheldon built me a new rear wheel. It has been BULLETPROOF! Hasn't even gone out of true, even with a full load on the rear. Thanks, Sheldon!

    I quit smoking cigarettes on June 14, 1968. That photo was from an April Fool page.

    I'm also not a *** fan...the tee shirt was a road find...

    Sheldon took the time to answer an incredibly obscure question about quick release skewers (he favors the internal cam, by the way). His answer was quick, informative, pithy, and saved me a few bucks.

    If I ever get to West Newton, MA, I'm going to drop in to shake his hand and pick up a Harris Cyclery jersey. Maybe I'll buy a Real Man Saddle too.

    Kudos to Sheldon Brown. I got back into cycling after being away from the sport for about seven years or so while busy with life , and discovered Sheldon Brown's web-site. I thought I knew a lot about cycling, but his site and clear writings has shown me a lot I did not know, and has let me see "known" issues in new light.

    Also, he has given me the confidence to really become an aspirational bicycle mechanic. I have discovered a new pleasure of doing maintenance and repair jobs on our bikes (my son's and mine).

    I hope to use the things and skills I have learnt from his site in building bicycles from frames for us soon.

    Thank you Sheldon.

    All the best,
    Regards,

    Jed

    Indeed... what a great contribution to humanity...

    life lived not wasting time.

    I wish more people could realize themselves even close to Sheldon Brown.

    Good luck, and thanks for articles in russian too
