Seeing as I reckon it's finally summer decided to get the Corsa Extra out of storage in readiness. As you can see it needs a good clean and the lawn round the shed isn't looking too clever either.

Might get rid of the computer, don't think it looks so good.

Whilst at the retrobike storage cave happened on my old Merckx and a few unfinished (or unstarted) projects.

Do those old guys a favor and find them a simple hook on the wall.

I have never used cycling computers, partly because of aesthetics, partly to keep my attention on the road. Now with all of my buddies sporting some type of Garmin device I get all of the feedback I need second hand.

Hook would be good, sadly it's in a rented metal storage container so not really a goer. The stack probably look worse than it is.

@bodie - yes it's a 753. Needs paint though.
