  • Why become a host on Spokeo? Joining the bike sharing community feels great. By sharing your bike, you are helping someone get out on two wheels to see the world. You are helping the planet. And, you can put some spending money in your pocket.
  • Will my bike see wear and tear? In general, bikes are quite rugged, but with regular use, bikes do see wear and tear. Sharing your bike will lead to some wear and tear including, minor nicks or scratches, issues requiring a minor adjustment, such as rubbing brakes or mis-shifting, tire & brake wear, etc. If your bike is super precious to you (we get it! some bikes can be precious!), you probably shouldn't be sharing it on Spokeo.
  • Who's responsible if there is damage to the bike that is more than wear and tear? Anything beyond normal wear and tear, the renter is responsible for paying for. Renters agree to this as part of their rental agreement. As a last line of defense if the renter is non-compliant, Spokeo provides up to $5,000 in insurance.
