Comfortable cockpit, room to spare. Functional yet simple. I absolutely love the iMotion 9 indicator panel. I've gotten to know my gearing so well I know exactly what gear to use on what terrain.

The dashboard... complete with lighting, mirror, computer, and horn.

A GPS is a little ridiculous. And by little ridiculous I mean a lot ridiculous. The only thing it does that your digital thermometer over there on the right doesn't do is to mark points on a route. I don't see how that is necessary while commuting.

Here's one of my two commuters, an old Trek road bike that one of my pals dubbed the Battlestar Galactica for its aresenal of lights.

http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/f.../dashboard.jpg

On the bars:

Olight M20 Warrior Premium R2 with OP reflector, mounted in a LockBlock
DiNotte 600L
Cateye Velo 8 computer

On the stem:

Polar CS200 HRM, used just for heart rate on this bike

On the head tube:

LumaPower MRV SideKick, mounted in a TwoFish CycloBlock on a Minoura Besso (steers with the bike, not the bars/fork; used as a high-beam headlight)

Not shown:

Fenix L2D Premium Q5


My other commuting bike... partial photo. Shares the Polar HRM and the lights with the Trek.

Here is mine. I've got my bell, a crappy light that I really need to replace, and pepper spray. I ride through a not-very-nice neighborhood, and I'm a woman.

I added an LED that draws power off my main light battery. I like it cuz it's on when the lights are on and although my computer has a backlight, you have to press a button and it only stays on for 5 seconds or so. This way i just look down.

My Giant TranSend DX. I just swapped over to the Nashbar trekking bars about 2 weeks ago. I have about 100 miles on them and I LOVE them so far. Yes I know they are mounted backward. I found them to be more comfortable that way after a little testing.

Set up includes:
Ergon grips that are OEM on the TranSend's normal bars, so I swapped them over because I love them.
Cheapo Giant computer. The LBS manager threw it in for an extra $15 when i bought the bike.
Planet Bike 3 beamer mounted under the bars. Good in flash mode to make myself visible, but not very bright.
The empty mount to see on the right is for an awful Giant brand headlight. It has since been relegated to back up lighting duty since it sucks like a dock-side hooker during fleet week.

Edit to add: Apree- I admire you taking the initiative by adding the pepper spray to your set-up. Good on ya ma'am. It's nice to see peope take persona responsibility to insure their safety.

I am trying to get my son to show me how to download pics so I can post my commuter. But as I was looking at your bikes, and dang nice bikes they are, I had a thought. We are probably all crazy.

Mine for now. Looking at adding a mount below the main bars for the lights to make room for my GPS up top.

Bar bag isn't usually on there, but it's the only shot I've got.

I dunno about you guys, but I don't have a dashboard, nor a cockpit. I do have handlebars, if your interested.

Helmet mounted light, and what do I need a computer for. Two brakes and a bell are all for me

I geocache on a bike, maybe he does too. Lots of other uses for a GPS, don't put down what you're mind can't get a grasp on.

PigChaser, I like the LED trick. Does blue whack with your night vision versus using the generally accepted red?

Here's mine (with my pointless GPS)

I love my backwards trekking bars.

I had posted this in post#83, but apparently the photo got moved or something because the image is dead.

I have the same GPS on my handelbars and use it for geocaching. That particular GPS also does a pretty good job of tracking elevation. It's also great to have on my bike when I'm away on business travel makes it real convinent getting around an unknown area.
