A mixture of old, new, and Fred. Twined cloth tape with coated with shellac (old), modern style Ritchey Biomax bar (new), and pipe clamp mounted Mini Maglite "headlamp" along with the German rearview mirror (Fred).

P.S.: The Cateye cyclocomputer is usually not on the bike during commute mode, but I put it on so I can collect a bit of commuting data this coming week.

Balance of the force to those rascals that likes to shoot Nerf guns at passing cyclists.

Zombies don't sleep, you should know that Tom!

Since you asked for something recent, I give you the most boring commuter dashboard on the planet!
(Even the Flea rarely situates the handlebars for fear of being swiped!).

Just taken today, halfway through my first ride on my new commuter. I try to keep things simple. There is a headlite there just beyond the left water bottle and my smart phone is in the bag.

2013 Brompton S6L-X pretty stock; already came with a weak
bell built into one of the shifters. In the middle is a mount for
a Garmin 200; I don't bother putting it on sometimes because
it gets knocked when I fold the bike. That light is a 5 XML head
unit I'm doing some testing.

I know this thread had been sinking into oblivion, but after changing the bars on my Bacchetta Corsa I just had to post a pick of the "dashboard". Besides, I like seeing how other riders decorate their dash. I bought the bike used with the 18.75 inch wide long reach 300mm bars. I ordered the 22 inch bars and switched them out today.

From left to right. Bontrager handle grips, Sram X-9 grip shift, Mirrycle Incredibell, Cycle Star Mirror, Avoitronics Divoom Bluetune-bean velcroed to a reflector mount. On the stem is my Samsung Galaxy S2 for music in a Pro Patch cell phone holder. Next is the Sigma BC 16 cycle computer with cadence, Timex Iron Man watch with Heart Rate monitor, another mirror, shifter and grip.

There are braze ons for bottle cages on the handle bars. Very convenient.

Yes, it's a recumbent. It's a Sun Bicycles EZ Sport AX. Here's a picture of the bike.



I have gone totally recumbent now. My new dash belongs to a Bacchetta Corsa.



Both Bikes.



Later

Wow! I thought my Dash looked busy. Is that a back-up camera monitor in the middle?
