**Show me your COCKPIT**

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

**Show me your COCKPIT**

Searched and couldn't find a pic thread on cockpits. Arguably my favorite part of bikes and thats what we all see while riding.

i had one with the full death star in it but opted for something a bit more commuterish...the melenium falcon is the commuter of the universe...chewbacca would never shave his legs, nor would I. Darth Vader on the other hand...silky smoooooth

A little drag, but it's nothing bad.

Great thread..made me lol a few times!

It did make me realize how much I hate having my garmin edge 705 mounted on my stem. Seems like no matter how much I tighten the cable ties it starts to slip around when it gets hot and humid out.

Does anyone happen to know if they make a handlebar mount for the 705 similar to the ones posted in this thread or the SRM computers all the pros use?
