Pretty basic, my Trek 7100 /w Cateye Strada Cadence and Fenix L2D on the bars.
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.
On the bars:
Olight M20 Warrior Premium R2 with OP reflector, mounted in a LockBlock
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)
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.
Good Night Chesty, Wherever You Are
HRM, Bell, Mirror, Phone, Cygolite, and Coffee. dawn action shot.
Couple days a week I use my fixie, just a bell.
Mine for now. Looking at adding a mount below the main bars for the lights to make room for my GPS up top.
You cant have a signature unless it fits in this box
I am not sure I can do this. I dunno if I attached something or not.
i hope I have included a pic of my bike.
Good Night Chesty, Wherever You Are
Specialized BG grips, Incredibell XL, Cateye Wireless computer, Cateye 3 LED flashing/constant light, Shimano 8 speed grip shifter, Lumotec Halogen front light (rear LED) to Shimano Dyno-hub, Nimbus reflector sidewall 700x38C tires.
Here's mine. A little "lite on" compared with the others posted here. In fact I forgot to put my light on for the shot . I use a Knog "Toad".
Road Bike: 2004 ORBEA Mitis2+Carbon, Freekin' groovy Urban / Mountain Road Cruising Bike: 2007 CANNONDALE Bad Boy Disc, MTB: 2012 Trek Gary Fisher Collection Marlin WSD 29er
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
Updated picture after beefing up my lighting:
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.
