i was very sorry to hear about Dave Staub death.I met him last year at the VR in Pasadena.His speech was very cool and interesting,sharing some very precious memories,and his tale about Cino having an argue/fight with Faliero(about what,we dont know)made me smile,plus,at the end of the tale Brian asked"Who won?" and the whole room laughed!Later on,when he found out i was from Florence he was surprised and pleased,so we talked about his previous trips to italy and what his impressions were.He told me that he was gonna go to Italy again soon,so i told him to stop in Firenze while there,so we could have go for an espresso.During the day,he was tempted,more than once,to buy a Monte frame,but he had to back up due to money reasons apparently(Brian,i think u have what he was looking at that day) Well,i didnt meet him him while he was travelling around Italy this year,so i thought that(if ill would raise enough money before october)i would see him again in California,along with all the people i ve met last year.Well,it wont happen.

...Riposa In Pace,Mr.Dave Staub.
