The Oxford band’s drummer and avid cyclist Jack Bevan joined forces with top UK cycle manufacturer Brompton to create the “Foals-themed” bike, which was handbuilt in London.
“Using Brompton’s renowned folding C Line frame as a basis, Jack customised the design using his own choice of additional components, including a Brookes Cambium saddle as well as the stylish, high-performance tan wall tyres provided by Schwalbe,” an official listing reads.
To be in with a chance of winning the bike, fans are required to enter a Crowdfunder raffle for either £5 (one ticket), £10 (three tickets) or £20 (eight tickets). You can buy yours here until August 25.
All money raised will go to the Mental Health Foundation. See a preview image of the bike below.
“I’m so pleased that we have collaborated with Brompton on a one-off Foals bike for the Mental Health Foundation,” Bevan said in a statement.
“I have been riding a Brompton for years and I love their bikes so it’s been very cool to make something unique with them, especially when we can raise money for a very good cause.”
Speaking to NME recently at Mad Cool 2022, Jack Bevan said that the group’s live show “feels really exciting at the moment” following the release of their joyous seventh record ‘Life Is Yours’ last month.
“It feels really nice having these lighter, dancier, poppy songs because we never had problems in the past with the end of the set,” he explained.
“All of the heavier, more intense ones have always slotted in to make a really good end of set. It’s the first half of the set in the past where we haven’t had enough of those lighter, dancier songs.”
