Spidereyes posted this morning to Andy RT.
Chris, I’ve emailed you with a plan? If it’s not a goer I’ll get the silver prototype back tom you. please let me know what would suit you best..Posted 10 years ago
Got it 😀
Chris, that mk 2 looks ace!
You still on target for feb to manufacture?
I WILL buy one. FACT.
Looking forward to riding with Mk1
Is it due to go back to you Chris after me?Posted 10 years ago
When you have done with it I would like it back to strip and give to the machinist to have a look at as want to try and keep some of the bonkers looks too .
If anyone else wants a try I will swop it for the MK2 and send back out.
Hopefully might get some metal cut before xmasPosted 10 years ago
Chris, I emailed re the other light I have of yours, can you let me know if that’s possible?Posted 10 years ago
I have just been officially amazed, you could say I have seen the light!
THE LIGHT TO RULE OTHER LIGHTS AND IN THE DARKNESS BLIND THEM!
to give anyone who cares any idea how good spidereyes is:
You know those cinematic scenes where dim lighting of the protagonists face is then made bright in a rectangle around their eyes?
Well the trail ahead is your scene, and the singletrack is given the perfect, bright rectangle (where bunnies/squirrels and any other living thing will dessicate before your very eyes.
My speed was managed by a brilliant Dream Theatre album running at about 210bpm. Not once did my singlespeed beasting session did I feel like I was going too fast to hold the pace (until I turned it off and relied upon my sturdy exposure 720 lumen candle! 😯
OMFG!!!!!!Posted 10 years ago

Life is not the same without it……………….Posted 10 years ago
I share your pain, missing it already and it’s still here….Posted 10 years ago
cheers anthonyb, I’ve emailed you.
Chris, if by any chance the SpiderEye mk2 happens to be available for demo by Sunday, can you bring it along so I can borrow it? I can then drop off the Cutie demo and SpiderEye MK2 demo on my way home from work a week or two later.Posted 10 years ago
Just think of the fun i had when i was fortune enough to have BOTH of them at the same time…… 😛
Only thing was, it was a very wet night and you got the glare back when up on full…….BUT….when the rain stopped and i had them both on max, down through the trees……, TRUELY AWSOME!!!!!!!!!.
So, after coming off the hill and the Spider yes was off, the “Cutie” (now the Dominator) was used for the tarmac back to town. Once there were no cars coming on the A66 i switched it to MAX…..I honestly said ” I could drive my car with that” !!!!!!!.
Just thought i`d share that with you all! 😀Posted 10 years ago
Just been out tonight for a first ride with the Cutie (Dominator demo?), very impressed with it. There were lots of lights on the ride, so generally happy with it on low for most of the time to not cause shadowing for others. Cranked it up to max occasionally and it is very good, lots of close range flood and very good distance reach. Had it upside down under the handlebars so as not to damage it, which was commented as probably not the best way, with it having a bit of a shroud. Will probably try it out again, on my own, on more of a mince ride, with it upright on the bars.Posted 10 years ago
