Here are some reasons not to install bike lanes on a street:
The street is too narrow for bike lanes. They would encroach on the available space for car lanes and/or curbside parking.
The street is too wide for bike lanes. There's already so much room for cyclists that bike lanes would be unnecessary.
The street traffic volume is too high for bike lanes. Busy streets with lots of uses might be desirable destinations for cyclists, but there are already too many cars for cyclists to coexist safely.
The street traffic volume is too low for bike lanes. Quiet, sleepy streets are not intimidating for cyclists, so there's no actual need for bike lanes there.
