Just fyi, should this thread be open to the public? When clicking on the header as a Guest it comes up as an error.

It's in the Members' Lounge, so yeah, I see your point. I don't think anyone is going to bother changing it though. ;)

    We could simply move it to general discussion?

    We could and Tu had a valid point and was sweet for mentioning it but I like that it's a members thing. A little more intimate and off the search engine radar, which is somehow a bit more respectful. This is one of those usability issues that I don't mind not addressing. :P

    Eulogy

    Not sure any of us Knew Keith, or as sometimes referred Uncle Keith.

    but I think I can say we all looked forward to his posts and chats. He loved Cycling especially British, but had a real soft spot for Contador, he would banter and discuss with Flo the ins and outs of Tinkoff team and how AC was travelling.

    He liked a discussion and even admitted to seeing some issues with rose coloured glasses, not Darkside though,  I think he wanted if there was evidence to be the one who found it re Sky, and that's what a lot of people missed, they saw a British cycling fanboy, but that was just a disguise.  He just wanted facts and was ready to tell the world if he found them.

    His book reviews were becoming the stuff of VR legend, he could read fast and get the facts as seen through his eyes out in a way that made you feel like you had read the book.

    He took over and organised the prediction game, because it needed doing and was happy to see Flo take over, it seems these 2 had a bond, a crazy thing really, a English man with 2 kids and a Dutch kid starting out in life bonding over cycling and this thing called Velorooms.

    Life is crap sometimes, but thanks Keith for the short time we knew you. You in riched us with your passion and ways.

    RIP Keith

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    Sad news indeed. I was away in late July and early August and when I returned, I had to throw myself into work. But when I did log on here something was clearly missing, a note among the clamour of voices wasn't there, an important note, a note that helped make VR worth logging on to, but one I couldn't identify as missing. No surprise really what with summer holidays and people finding other things to do, but stumbling on this thread while looking for something totally different, I find that the reality is much more shocking. 

    RIP Keith.
