He and his family will be in my thoughts. Very sad news indeed
I am very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. I only met him once, when I lent him a cell phone and a triple a card to get into his car at the start of the 200 K brevet. What a loss.
My thoughts are with Tom, his family, and friends on this sad day. Tom’s presence will be deeply missed by all who have been fortunate to have met him and ridden with him. I will miss my friend coming up from behind with a goofy blast from his bike horn, a huge smile, and encouraging words that made even the longest ride a pleasure.

I’m really sorry to hear about Tom’s death. I never met him but spoke to him by phone a couple of times when I was ordering my Selle-Anatomica saddle. He seemed like a great guy and spent a fair amount of time answering my questions. He’ll be in my thoughts when I ride home today on his great saddle.
I want to say thanks to all who have written such lovely things about Tommy. It is so sad that he died.
[...] Speaking of saddles, the Selle An-Atomica beats the heck out of the Brooks it replaced for sheer comfort. BTW – does anyone know the status of S-A with Tom Milton’s passing? [...]
