..or is it Wish List?

I'm about to travel to Europe to tour. I don't really want to spend the hundreds of dollars it costs to fly my bike. I was thinking that it would be very cool if WS had a "Bike Use Trade" page, sort of like a house exchange.
Since most of us don't tour 24/7, we all will often have extra bikes available for someone to borrow. One bug is that you'd need to make arrangements for the return of the bike, but shipping a bike domestically is cheaper than flying. And maybe a security deposit arrangements? I guess as long as everyone can set up a SQUARE account on their smart phone, you could take a deposit.
Still in the early concept stages. Anyone have good ideas?
