Whether it's the timing or the pick up location of the rental, remember to be flexible. It makes it a lot more fun.

Read and Leave Reviews

Reviews provide a level of security on our system. Reading reviews will give you a good idea of which bikes are best to rent and which people are best to rent from.

Following your bike rental, leave an honest review for the Lister and their bike. It'll help the next renter who comes along to find their dream ride and a great experience along with it.

Common Renter Questions

Feel free to email us if you still have questions.

What if I get a flat tire?

Spinlister can recommend repair shops in every active city that will fix any bike problems. It is your responsibility to return the bicycle in great shape to avoid additional charges and receiving a negative review.

What if I want a bike for the weekend but I have nowhere to keep the bike overnight?

Renting a bike with same-day return may be your best option. If you are comfortable locking the bike outside that is fine but you are responsible for the safety of the bicycle.

What if the bike gets stolen while I'm renting it?

Notify Spinlister right away. We will work with you to determine the best course of action. Remember the bike is your full responsibility while renting it and it may be found that you need to pay to replace the bike. We think that if you were borrowing a bike from a friend you would be similarly responsible.
