    CES 2018: PEPCOM Digital Experience comment by Curtis Wilcox /Link

    Alarm doesn't mean much if there's a handy body of water to throw the bike into.

    Cities and China have already experienced an incredible boom and bust of dockless bike rentals.

    Leave the bikes anywhere but a proper bike-locking spot and you're basically littering. Leave them at a proper bike-locking spot and they could consume too much space, not leaving room for bike-owners to lock up. You can't bring them indoors, that denies access for others to rent them.

    I don't know that any American city has enough infrastructure to really support this model. Every block should have a car parking space converted to a bike parking spacer owned and rented ones, popular destinations would naturally need more.
