It’s been more than a year since Spinlister launched its ‘Airbnb for bikes’ in New York City and San Francisco.
Spinlister has bikes listed from its users in all major US cities, as well as in some smaller ones. “We have 1,500 bikes listed in the US and Canada, and listings are consistently growing,” explains [original seed-investor and incumbent CEO] Marcelo Loureiro.
Our goal is to be the global hub for peer-to-peer outdoor sports gear rentals,” he says.
