Light and Computer with Handlebar Bag?

Just wondering if anyone has successfully done this with the kind of bag that klicks in? Looking at the cannondale with the click option but worried I won't be able to mount anything else.

For my mountain bike, I have a Sunlite Bar Tender 4 which is a pretty good sized bag. It has a mount that put the bag a few inches off of the handle bars. That leaves plenty of room for the computer. I stick my light in the mesh side pocket. The light mount is just to the side of the bracket for when I don't use the bag. The sacrifice on the bag mount is that it puts the bag a little higher than if using the straps. However, the mount keeps the bag fixed in place.

You can find them new on ebay in the upper $20's Buy it Now.

I had no problem moving my computer off to the side of the mounting bracket for my Nashbar Elite h'bar bag. I'm still fiddling around with light mounting options, because I don't like helmet mounted lighting.

AllenG - How did you mount your light to the fork bridge? Is there some sort of adapter that I can get which would work for a MTB set up with canti brakes (don't want the hanger cable in the way) and a fender mounted up front?
