Worst pre-Hinge date?
I went on a date with someone who refused to answer “interview questions” like where she was from, or what she liked to do in her free time. She thought the only appropriate questions were things like “if you were trapped on a desert island, what five foods would you take?” I learned a lot of random trivia, but almost nothing about her as a person. She also called me two minutes before we were supposed to meet to say she’d be 45 minutes late… it didn’t work out.
Tell us about Brilliant Bicycles—what’s it all about?
Brilliant Bicycles is an e-commerce bicycle brand. We sell simple, beautiful bikes online, and deliver them right to you. We also offer in-home concierge assembly and service, where we’ll put on accessories, mount a bike rack, or teach you how to inflate or change a tire - the goal is to make finding, buying, and owning a bike as easy as possible. We’re designing for the casual rider who just wants to cruise around their neighborhood or bike to the gym, and look good doing it.
