Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes. Not infallible and certainly irascible, but he was among the most valuable contributors to the sum of bike technology and knowledge. We owe him a great debt which I think we can best repay by heeding his teachings.

Alav ha shalom. May he rest in peace.

There are, I believe, 2 other threads on Brandt on BF but nothing wrong with a 3d, 4th, 5th, etc. That is a wonderful obit that you linked to. He was clearly a major figure in cycling. His wheel book really helped me out when I started building wheels. He will be missed.

^ I just searched the road forum. Didn't think about C&V or A&S.

RIP. His contributions to cycling will long outlive him.
