5,000 LimeBikes saved…or not?
Some good news floated my way recently…
Now it’s not good news anymore.
We’ve been told to take down the article that was once here. We want to make it very clear that the request did not come from Lime.
We also received a vague legal threat in relation to this article. We were not given a specific, written explanation as to what warranted the threat.
We don’t know what’s going on. But we have reason to believe that someone hasn’t been telling us the truth about who really owns the 5,000 green and yellow bikes somewhere in California.
But we’re really upset about this on three counts:
First, we’re being treated like the bad guy here. We resent that for obvious reasons.
Secondly, someone has played us for a sucker. We resent this, also, for obvious reasons.
Third, we don’t like seeing shared bicycles involved in scandal. Earlier this year, we helped to change the culture of how shared bicycles should be disposed of, leading to 5,298 bicycles saved between a Buffalo-based mobility company and Bici Catarinas of Mexico.
We really don’t know what to say about this, but we have nothing more to say or add. This is all we know – and once again, we’re completely in the dark.
So here’s a picture of a LimeBike that we saved and spent months refurbishing.
