Recording foley bicycle spinning sounds
One of my best friends has a bike shop in Germany and while visiting him I recorded several bicycle sound effects in his living room. Cycling is a passion of mine and in the past, I did competitive road cycling and triathlons.
Luckily for me, my friend had 5 bikes stored in his home for me to capture the sounds of chains, pedaling, cogwheels, and the mechanic bike stand. Each bicycle was built at a different time which provided diversity audio to record.
What you will hear…
We have sounds from a Shimano Dura Ace, SRAM Red and Force, and a Campagnolo Mix. The oldest bike is from 1960 and the newest from 2017.
I also included several new bicycle recordings from Singapore. While living there we discovered an app that allows you to easily rent city bikes. The mechanical stand created some fantastic noises. I placed my contact microphone and recorded the locking and unlocking of the bike, ringer, and shifter.
Later we took the city bikes and drove to the east coast. One of the bikes had horrible breaks that were great to record! We went to a small tunnel under the highway and recorded the sound of the squeaking brakes and simulated an accident by “crashing” into the wall and on the stairs!
