Trotify: Make Your Bike Sound Like A Horse Clopping

November 26, 2012


This is Trotify, a wooden device powered by your bike's front wheel that makes it sound like you're a horse clopping along down the road whenever you're riding. There's no horse though, it's just you and your handlebar mustache on a bicycle. The £19.99 (~$32) kits come with everything you need to build your own EXCEPT the coconut. The coconut is your responsibility. The folks behind the product need at least 1,000 orders to begin manufacture though, and so far they've only received 119. I dunno, maybe they overestimated the 'bike that sounds like a horse' market. Now a bike that sounds like a rocketship -- that's a million dollar idea.

Hit the jump for a video of the Trotify in action. SPOKEY DOKES FOR LIFE.

Thanks to Yannick, whose bike sounds like a tiger stalking its prey: dead silent. Me? I'm loud as hell when I'm riding my bike because I want people to know I'm there and not kill me.

    Maybe this would sell to more that 119 retards if it had better sfx, in my opinion...what whacko said.

    I'd be more impressed if it was a setup attached to the wheels, but with real looking hoofs with horseshoes hitting the floor, two on each wheel to make it sound more realistic.

  • ah, clever. I think I might try this while taking a ride through the park next year on the first of April.

  • Sounds like a horse with 3 legs...

    sounds like your horse is sick

  • That would break in no time, it's almost like people don't use bikes for transportation. It's like it's some sort of status symbol or something.

    Because cutting a coconut is a very simple and safe procedure.

  • whacko

    Horses? Sounds like someone weakly banging two coconuts together, to me.

    I was going to use the exact same quote as you used :(

    I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

    *insert monty python joke here*

    I wonder what kind of barn-swallow carried that coconut...
