As someone who grew up in the Netherlands biking to school, work, and everything - these set-ups work very well. The bicycle is very nimble the slight change in direction is not an obstacle nor does it make the cyclist slow down. All cyclist follow the path and because it is so clearly marked by colour, separation, and perhaps even dedicated traffic signals cars respect the cyclist.

I understand that it might look like the curb is in the path of the bicycle traffic. In reality, however, the cyclist does not experience this as an obstacle or traffic calming measure.
