has been offering American cyclists the opportunity to share their bikes, which they can search by zip code and type, since 2012. Now active in 66 countries, the platform takes a 17.5% commission on the rental amount and insures the bikes. And just asAirbnb renters can point their renters to good local deals, Spinlister renters can point out good bike paths in their neighborhood or even go riding with them. To illustrate its potential, the Santa Monica, California-based start-up claims that demand is 60% higher than its current offering can satisfy. Competing with the Texan , launched in 2013 in Austin, Spinlister has raised 2 million dollars and diversified to other devices: snowboards and surfboards.
