You won’t find any usual well-oiled, wind tunnel tested, aerodynamically perfect sounding bicycles in this library!
This pack of sounds has been recorded to capture the extreme creaks and that “old sounding busted bike” kind of sounds.
3 bicycles, all with a special sonical personality to them, where recorded. 2 SCO gentlemen’s bicycles, from 1970-1980, and 1 home trainer a little younger than the others.
Recorded inside a studio with the bikes either being on a dynamo or suspended from the ceiling, all bikes had mounted lavalier microphones front and back, and a microphone overhead of the rider. Some takes have a contact microphone track to add to the misery.
Included are, interior recordings from 3 different bicycles:
- Long rides, multiple tempos
- Gears spinning
- Extreme creaks from saddle and frame
- Chain and chain guard noises
- Pedal spins
- Shaking and kicking bicycle frame
- Hometrainer riding
