Im compelled to offer my own acknowledgement of Dave Staub, a friend since I was 16 years old (1967) when he was the Schwinn rep. in Northern California and I was a jr track/road racer. Dave was one of the highest quality track and crit riders of the era, with international competition experience...offering advice and support to those of us aspiring to his achievements. Since then, and after numerous moves around the country, we kept meeting at the most unexpected times...sometimes on rides...surprised discovery behind sunglasses and helmets. Always a gentleman, consistently a friend, I just spoke with him two weeks ago. We planned to ride in So Cal while Im staying in Seal Beach on family vacation...I really looked forward to seeing him and riding together. The news of his passing, apparently while doing what we all enjoy most...riding the bike...was shocking. As many of you who met him at the CyclesDeOro event earlier this year found out, Dave is truly a human being of multiple qualities. He will be missed by many who have had the joy of knowing him.
