    Anybody remember oldfool? http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=6481395

    Not sure if I started reading his blog becouse I found a link here or at the lovely bicycle blog.

    I enjoyed reading his blog and was shocked to read in the comments on his last posting that he passed away on the 23 of september 2012 after suffering a stroke. I`ll miss reading his blog!
    RIP oldfool.

    What a spooky last blog post. I used to check his blog from time to time. He was quite the character (with a lot of character as well)...

    From the family. Thank you all for your concern. He suffered a stroke on Sunday and has passed away. I know this blog gave him a lot of pleasure and he would appreciate your concern.

    He was one of a kind; he will be sorely missed.

    Why didn't he go to a doctor sooner?
