    David - Spinlister now is global and launched a mobile app

  • Shauna Nep

    Good news!! Spinlister is now in LA- I just got the email notification.

    • Dave Burdick

      Oh, man! Just days after I returned to colorful Colorado and my own ride. Next time!

  • Tim Skirven

    I would definitely lend out my beater bike for this.

  • Jeff Nelder

    Great opportunity for service. I sincerely hope it continues! The larger issue that Dave brought up is so very important: we hope people will participate in a way to ensure that trust is not abused in this system. If the model works and scales for bikes, it's an important statement about the intentions and ethics of society-at-large.

    Spinlister is pretty darn awesome. I've been renting out my bike this summer and made a small chunk of change and met some fun people. For anyone that ever needs a ride in NY, check out my bike --

      I know somebody who'd rent the heck outta that bike!

  • Doris Yee

    I would be willing to try - my bike isn't in the best of conditions. But it does hold sentimental value. According to Spinlister's safety and security policy, they'll cover up to $5000 in damages or replacement (as buy you a cake). That can either be amazing and generous. Or bike-owners could easily take advantage of it.

      Yeah, depending on the "fair value" of your bike. So, as with basically any kind of insurance agreement you enter into, it makes sense to take photos of your property so you can easily say, "This bike was blue and made by Fuji AND HAD AN AWESOME BELL ON IT."
