'Ask Sheldon' is about as reflexive as Googling for some bit of general info. Bummer.

Yeah. I once referred to him, rather resignedly, as "the man who has tried everything" in BikeForums. True to form, he responded to the post with good humor, and useful information.

I'm not saying this snarkily or sarcastically, though, silly as it sounds: if I imagine what a saint should be, Sheldon Brown comes pretty close to fitting the bill. Saint Sheldon.
