Checking in with Burton

Burton Gabriel is another mechanic (and former book publisher!) who has made a huge impact on my life and my career. Burt is primarily into European bikes, and we worked together for several years at various shops in the Bay Area. He's definitely helped me to improve, and he always stressed the importance of having the right tool for the right job. On the way to go visit him, I spotted this truck. See why it's cool?

Burt's recovering from some surgeries, but I know he'll be back up and spinning wrenches soon. I'm really glad I had a chance to see him again, and maybe we'll get that place in Nice one day!
