Frank's situation is extreme, but overall the LBS's will be fine.

Bike share programs tend to increase overall cycling rates. (http://ajph.aphapublications.org/doi...nalCode=ajph&&)

In the same way that taxis don't eliminate cars, Citi Bike is not a replacement for owning a bicycle. It's a public transportation option, which is faster, easier and greener to set up and maintain.
