    Handle Bar Real Estate getting expensive.

    My handle bars are getting a little crowded. Thought I would post a picture so you guys can make fun of me. Why not post your crowded handle bars so we can compare our luxury estates

    Here you go.

    By the way my bike is a 2005 Trek 520. Just incase you cared.

    It's a combination AM/FM radio/bike computer. Pretty cool, actually. I can listen to NPR and still hear the occasional cars approach. My commute is 14.5 miles and mostly rural.

    I have one of those Garmin GPS units but I keep it in a pannier. I don't generally need to see it while moving.

    I run bullhorns and the space is always tight. I second the suggestion for Minoru Space Grip. Here is the setup on our tandem, with the headlight removed. Tandems have an extra thumb lever to control the drag brake.

    Now I just need to find a sub-woofer power supply that will run off of a generator hub.

    Well, I have two brake levers and a bell. That's gotta count for something.

    Well, the difference between a fully-loaded handlebar and a bare one is 5 minutes stripping it/building it up when you leave/get ready to ride.

    Oh, and a few pounds.

    (for the record, I have two quick-strap blinkies on my handlebars)

    Yes, it's a CygoLite Night Rover. I don't actually carry it all the time as I don't often ride at night.

    But thanks for the laugh! Like I ever go so fast on my bike that I need a radar detector! Now, when I'm driving my Mustang, that's a different story.

    That's the shield generator/forward phasor array combo unit, flanked on each side by photon torpedo tubes (with rearview mirrors)

    Hey, I didn't buy ONE of those gadgets without reading about it here first.

    And no one even asked me about the throttle!

    Damnnnnn I didn't even notice that thumb throttle. I was to busy looking at the forward phaser banks.

    Longhorn... I think we need a picture of your entire bike. You have that much crap on your handlebars I can't wait to see what your carying around on your rack.

    Your wish is my command! The only thing that is different is I now have a Brooks Champion Flyer "S" in honey. I really don't carry that much more besides the battery, under the top tube, and the motor on the back wheel. Other than that, just a rack and trunk bag which has zipout panniers. It's a heavy bike but I can lift it (without the battery) and put it on my trunk rack, and I'm a 50-year-old woman.

    No, as long as it doesn't go over 20 mph (using the motor,) it doesn't require registration. And this one won't go over 16 mph with me on it (the motor actually cuts off) except by pedal power. Also, it was $695 (accessories not included) so actually less than a lot of folks here pay for their bikes. Of course, the bike itself isn't the greatest quality -- certainly not the quality of my $400 Trek 7200. But it's meeting my needs for now.

    For real luxury, as far as e-bikes, anyway, you should check out the TidalForce bikes. If I wanted a bike that does all the work for me, I'd get one of those! And my e-bike shop said they're selling like hotcakes this summer.

    I actually had to take the bell off (not a cowbell ) because there wasn't enough room!

    I'd get a tractor-trailer airhorn on that baby.

    As far as not needing to register, your right, I doubt you even get that puppy over 20mph anyway.
