Spinlister Connects Bike Owners with Bike Renters

Going on a biking trip is a great way to spend a vacation, but it can be a pain to lug your bike along with you —  if you don’t pack it right, it runs the risk of getting damaged after you check it in on the plane.

Enter Spinlister, a new tool that helps connect bike riders with bike renters, so if you are flying half way around the world you don’t have to bring your bike with you. You can use the app to search for a bike rental at your destination. The app is also great if you’d like to make a little bit of extra money by renting out your own bikes to other cyclists. It’s like Airbnb for bikes. Here is more from the company’s iPhone app listing:

With Spinlister you can rent any kind of bike from people like you anywhere in the world. It’s easy and free to list your own bike, and decide whom to rent to. Spinlister connects amazing people with cool bikes from anywhere. When you need a ride, it’s a breeze to search by size, type, location, availability and cost. You can also clear all your questions through our conversation messaging system before confirming or accepting any rental.
