reCycles in Ottawa, they've been around since 1994 and have staffing resources that are funded by the university.The Bike Chain at university of Toronto serves a large number of students and receives $1 from every full time student as a levy (there are over 33000 undergraduates).
Community Cycles in Boulder, as far as I understand it is not officially tied to the university but is very friendly and receives a large amount of their business from CU-Boulder, I'm sure Rich or someone else here could speak further on that.

What Campus Bike Shops would you recommend as successful [business] models?

I would dictate success being dictating in terms of # of students served, acquiring support and space in prime locations on campus, etc.,...  but you are entitled to your own markers too.
