Spinlister user rents a bike from USC Triathlon Team member for her first ever triathlon, The 2014 Nautica Malibu Triathlon
New York native Liz Nuzzolese rented a Spinlister bike to race in her first ever triathlon, The 2014 Nautica Malibu Triathlon. Nuzzolese, originally registered for the relay category, made the decision to complete the triathlon on her own when her team members dropped out.
“I was on a flight from NYC to LA thinking about how I didn’t have a bike suitable for a race of this distance, I picked up Triathlete Magazine, and something caught my eye.. “AirBnB for bikes”.. Spinlister. BRILLIANT.” says Nuzzolese. “Within 24 hours I had already connected with Laura from the USC Triathlon Team who was more than happy to rent me her 2013 Specialized Women’s Dolce. I had 100% confidence that through Spinlister, I WILL ride a bike and I WILL conquer this triathlon.”
Nuzzolese rocked her first triathlon and is planning on renting though Spinlister again for the NYC Triathlon in November. “Through Spinlister, athletes have the opportunity to pick up a new hobby and give it a ‘tri.’ It’s like the ideal dating scenario for sports equipment! No commitment necessary!” said Nuzzolese.
“I’m very happy to hear user stories like Liz’s. We are a major sponsor of IRONMAN this season for this exact reason. We are pushing to create a global bike share for triathletes to list their bikes and help each other. Not to mention it helps grow the sport of triathlon!” said Spinlister’s CEO Marcelo Loureiro.
Spinlister is encouraging triathletes to list their bikes at www.spinlister.com/list to make money and help fellow triathletes in need of a bike. All bikes are insured up to $10,000 against theft or damage.
