Sheldon Brown, of Harris Cyclery in West Newton, MA, passed away last weekend at home of a heart attack.
Many bicyclists have benefitted from Mr. Brown's website which is a treasure of technical and historical cycling data and humor he'd been keeping up since 1997.

Mr. Brown leaves behind his wife, Harriet, daughter, Tova, and son, George.
