Humidor? Is that a joke? As in for cigars?
While you guys save the world.......I'm going to continue to commute on my "Ghetto Single Speed Bicycle" and place horse pucks on my garden.
1.88 mile daily Town/Rural Commute
My commute bike's dashboard is very simple compared to lots of the examples above. Dash of my DaHon Curve SL:
DaHon Curve Dashboard.jpgBell is built into the left brake lever. Shifter is built into right grip. Added Garmin 800, NiteRider Minewt.

Nicely accessorized, Mardmakarm!
I finally got around to wrapping the bars on my fixed-gear. Not perfect, but I'm getting better at it.
Almost BattleFred ready!!! I still can do more, but this is what I have for the moment.......
Let see what do we have here.... My homemade handlebar bag, a handlebar extender (extended w/painted wood), 2 MiNewt X2's (not one dual system), a MiNewt 200, 2 PB 5 LED Beamers, a NR TriNewt (w/remote), the PDW Bar'ista, the NR MiNewt 600 Cordless, my laser designator, and one of my NR Digital Evolutions (w/thermometer, compass, and wind chill chart). My bikes' fork lockout, an Incredibell, Cateye Mity 8 Bike Computer, The Garmin 205 GPS unit, the MiNewt 200's battery and the stereo speakers for the iPod. Bike currently weighs in (w/o batteries) at 49.7lbs. My helmet has other MiNewt X2, and a PB Blinky 3H.
Still missing 4 more NR Digital Evolutions, an old NR Headtrip, 2 NR Classic Plus(es), a PDW Spaceship, and a Zefal headlight... Oh, btw, I can add the Gumball machine if necessary... and I use PVC pipe as my cutting guide for pruning.
oh, and I see I have a couple of inches left on the left hand side...... Hmmmm......
I'm still looking to get my hands on an AIM-9P Sidewinder Missile (1/1 scale replica) W/launch rail for my bike (Or a set of twin Browning 50 calibers (say painted broomsticks for the tailgunner position)) for CarWars! (The Disruptors are currently cloaked... can't remember exactly where I put the damn things )
I'm not sure why you need so many lights. Two on the bar and one on the helmet seems like it could be more light than you need. Unless you are putting little AAA Fauxtons on your bars. Do you have a pic in the dark with all the lights on? And half the lights? Most flashaholics don't go through such pretense to purchase more lights :-)

Then again, tonight I got an angry honk from the old fart who felt that he shouldn't have had to lock up his brakes while he was approaching a red light as I crossed in front of him at a crosswalk with the ped signal, and an oncoming pedestrian (no bike lane at the intersection) (there was plenty of space for me, not so much for the ped).
As lights get brighter and longer lasting (with less weight) I like to upgrade. Also, when rechargeable batteries die, often it's more cost effective to replace the systems than buy a replacement battery. I've also had some incredible deals over the years.

Good Grief! Nobody can miss you!!! WOW!!
Hey K'Tesh, do you happen to live near Area 51???
There's been sightings of strange flashing lights all around that area!

With all those lights, have you considered getting a large-ish lithium battery and rigging up a single current source? I'm thinking it must be hard to keep track of which ones need charging.
Why the laser pointer though?
Everyone hates your lights. Throw them away & buy something civilized.

Here is my setup. I have good clearance for my Interupter brake lever. Also the drop bars are clear of any lights or mounts so I don't have to compromise my different hand positions.
At the risk of being banned for having too simple a layout, here's my "new" Bianchi Premio's "dashboard."
