I've seen other bikesharing services which all require you to pickup and return your bike at specific stations. Spin just launched in Austin for SXSW (good timing 👍🏼).

@rrhoover Well yes, but their tagline "bike sharing, reinvented" is not true. They are simply copying the successful bike sharing model of Chinese companies like Mobike, Offo and alike.

👋 thanks @rrhoover! Hey everyone, I'm Derrick, one of the co-founders of Spin. We're solving the last mile transportation problem (https://medium.com/adventures-in...), and station-less bikeshare is our first stab at it! Happy to answer any questions you have here 🙌

I'm currently traveling in china and they have these everywhere it's a pretty awesome system. Their first iteration was the ones that need to be returned to the rack and these are their V2. In Ningbo there are already 2 competing companies. And or course they use WeChat to pay for them :)

Looking forward to trying this out in SF. I use Bay Area Bike Share all the time but sometimes having to leave it at the closest station near my destination is an inconvenience.
