I presume that's on the list because that is where the Alpine Bikes head 
office is (Alpine Bikes are owned by Tiso). And presumably where their 
mail order service / warehouse is based.

So I think it should be marked as "not found on the ground", because 
there's no actual bike shop at that location. Plus add a note to explain 
You could also tag it as something like office=bicycle, as suggested 
elsewhere in this thread.

I know that Alpine Bikes do have bike shops within Tiso shops in Glasgow 
and Inverness (which should be mapped as shop=bicycle), but I don't 
think that's the case in Leith.
