By ridding the streets of the beater bikes, you may be destroying some of the lasting images of this city. Outside of Hamilton, I've never witnessed a middle aged man with long hair and parachute pants perilously balancing 20 odd hubcaps on the sides of a rusting old bike swerving its way down the middle of Barton St.

More seriously, if you can't change the one way culture of the city -- adapt. Campaign for a bike lane on King, Main, Canon, and Wilson. separate the bike lane from the car lanes with a rumble strip or other minor barrier-- plant some trees even. The lane will barely be missed - it just may force people to drive the speed limit.
