Sheldon Brown, my favorite Internet bicycle resource. He hangs out over at rec.bicycles.tech and dispenses much wisdom and humor. My favorite humorous piece by him is Evil Bicycles.

Sheldon's a good guy, and his site is highly suggested for new cyclists.

Gee, I'd buy one just to pay Sheldon back for his writing saving me from going completely curled-up-in-a-fetal-position-crying crazy when adjusting my Giant's derailer.

I'm quite suprised that MeFites aren't more familiar with his wild antics.

I discovered him about 5 or 6 years ago, and a few years later had gone from having a Huffy to owning 6 bikes and 3 or 4 in parts. I worked as a mech in a community bike shop for a few years. I have since thinned the herd but am no less of an enthusiast.

When I visited a certian school in Boston I forced my parents to drive me out to Newton so I could meet him. He is quite a character. He has a wonderful web-based Cyclopedia built up, and I really wish he would learn modern web design.

I found his site extremly useful when I built the wheels on my bike.
