|I'm not sure what I'm missing but it doesn't look any different to me. |
As a cycling entusiast I find his site to be an invaluable resource, but as a web developer it makes me cringe.
I also notice that he offers his services to others. If they are anything like his my only advice would be to stick to bikes.

|It's Sheldon's look, not his site's look, that has changed.|

|so I can't comment on THAT new look. |
Funny that I associate the name Sheldon Brown more readily with a website than a human being.
|He's a bit of a throwback||filtersweep|

|Obviously he's never heard of broadband if he thinks graphics slow things down.
Sheldon is a bit of a throwback... I'd expect no less than circa-1994 HTML ;)

|for those of us on dialup (about 80% of the world), his design is wonderful. When I arrive at a site that wants to download great steaming lumps of graphics and/or Flash content, I simply leave. Doubtless graphic designers and the like don't care for simple text, but it does communicate more information faster than anything else. A picture is worth a thousand words, but only occasionally.|
|have to disagree on the "great design" comment||laffeaux|

|Although the site has incredible content, the design is poor (regardless if you have broadband or dial-up). You can have a well designed site with minimal graphics. Sheldon's site is nearly impossible to navigate, and if it weren't for the "search" feature I'm not sure I'd ever find anything. A good information architecture and clear navigation structure do not require high bandwidth, and the site has neither. Fortunately the wealth of content makes up for the lack of structure.|

|that is weird. First time he shaves since 1968. I wonder when was the last time he brushed his teeth :-)|
|Good to see another one join the brotherhood ...||PEDDLEFOOT|
