Yeah, remember it well and winding one up to all the 9's. Kept it on anyway as a badge of honour.I usually tend to fit a cheap basic cycle computer to whichever bikes I use most. I'm not interested in average speed or anything like that, I just want to record my mileage so I always get cheap basic ones. I suppose I could use my phone I'm sure but I don't always take my phone when riding, battery life is a concern - especially if touring and I suppose it's partly just habit as I was using cycle computers before I ever had a mobile phone never mind a smart phone.
I always plan my routes on a paper map as I can get to see the whole area I will be passing through in a way you can't with GPS.
On my pre-war Elswick I have one of these little babies to record my mileage
