      Interesting! In that article, it sounds like it might have started when the parking meters were still in use (heads intact), and it was more of a solution to bikes falling down that reusing old posts. Do you know?

        I don't have any firsthand knowledge myself, but I'm reading elsewhere that the first ones were installed in 1985, which is long before Toronto replaced its parking meters. Now the city installs "post and ring" bike racks on request.
