Young entrepreneurs open up shop

Monday, July 31st, 2006
I.A.I Bike Shop
[Isaac and Isaac, owners
of I.A.I. Bike Repair]

Meet Isaac Martinotti (age 12) and Isaac Bailey (age 13), two friends who share not only a first name, but also a love of working on bikes.

These neighborhood pals realized none of their friends could fix bikes, so they converted Isaac B’s garage and driveway into their very own bike shop. They’ve named it I.A.I. Bike Repair (as in Isaac and Isaac) and they’re eager for business.

Stolen: Blue Novara

Monday, July 31st, 2006

My bike was stoke in front of New Seasons grocery store on 7/26/06 at
9:40pm. It had a combination cable lock on it. No sign of the lock after
the theft.

The bike was a purplish electric blue Novara with Shimano gears/shifters
etc. A distinguishing feature is that it has the nice curved handle bar
extensions, but whoever owned it first installed them without removing the
foam handlebar grips and so there is a big buldge of foam at the start of
the extension.

Thanks for any help!

Stolen: Trek MTB

Monday, July 31st, 2006

I had my bike locked in front of my business at 520 NW Davis. It was taken
yesterday, Friday the 28th, between 11am and 5pm.

It is a dark rust red that fades to black Trek Singletrack. I cannot
remember the model #. But I’ve never seen another bike this color. Has a
new seat and a handle bar extension that raises the height of the bar. Also
has (or at least had) and HRC (yellow equal sign in blue box) sticker on it.
