“El ‘bicing’ ha reducido un 30% las ventas de bicicletas” - Expansión.com

“El ‘bicing’ ha reducido un 30% las ventas de bicicletas” - Expansión.com Expansion.com has an interview with Cahuas Escuder Pere who is one of the Probike owners:
Q: What do you think the 'bicing'? A: From the social point of view is an excellent idea to remove your hat, because there are more than 120,000 users in Barcelona bike. But the authorities have ignored the commercial network at the time of launching the service. Have not been how could affect our sales and if the retailers could offer our services in place that makes a multinational. We feel very bad about the treatment we received. In addition, the service is weak and disastrous.

Q: But do they have dropped the sales of bikes? A: Yes, the urban bike fell 30% in Barcelona and there are shops with problems. But I'm optimistic: I think the bicing have a positive impact in the long term.

I think the number of bicycles in Barcelona has probably increased already. At least the usage of bicycles has, because the city is much more bicycle friendly now.
