The auction goes live HERE May 28th.
The bikes have been designed by Foo Fighters, Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers, LCD Soundsystem, Khruangbin, Nathan East, Dinosaur Jr, Oh Wonder, Underworld, Sub Pop, Enrique Iglesias, Rise Against and Neko Case.
Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien is thrilled to have been included:
