  1. Thanks @The Fat Unicyclist. I'll keep you posted. :-)
  2. Hey all, long time lurker, first time poster (i generally hang in the FB groups cuz I'm an addict). I hear the same story a lot in my network of wheel friends--we all travel, often by plane, and it's painful to go to a new city and not have our wheel. Relegated to lesser forms of transport like scooters or bicycles. Why not be able to rent wheels, they ask? I think renting wheels like scooters, or bikes, or cars, doesn't make a lot of sense because the learning curve is so steep and people don't learn to ride them as part of cultural tradition like bikes or cars. But I do have an idea. A way we can leverage existing community to solve this problem. I'm building a platform that will let people sign up and rent their own wheels out in their area, similar to like an AirBnB. You'd be able to set your own prices and there'd be some kind of small fee paid to the site to make the connection happen. If you're going to a new city, you can check in on the platform by typing the city location to see who around the area has a wheel for rental. You'd schedule with them a pickup and return time, exchange money by cash or credit, probably be able to set some kind of deposit and rules around damage. I'm wondering what kind of questions or concerns you'd have before renting to / from your peers through such a service?
