You don't see those Sekine SHR very often. They were the immediate predecessor to the SHS. When we sold Sekine, the olive coloured models were always the last to sell.

I use my Sekine SHS 271 as an errand bike as well. These are great bikes.

I love everything about that Miyata. Also, you are a brave couple; N. University is a pretty busy road!

Gotta hand it to our friends at the USPS, for providing the absolute highest quality bike parking that the 1950s had to offer.....

honestly when we go down univeristy we take a lot of sidewalk nobody walks on it so its a curb protected bike lane. Generally we look for sharrows, trails or side streets but university is a pretty fun rollercoaster going south.
