Foals create their own ‘unique’ bike for mental health

Sarraigh created his own one-of-a-kind bike for the benefit of the Mental Health Foundation.

Oxford band drummer and keen cyclist Jack Bevan teamed up with leading UK bike maker Brompton to create the “Foals-themed” bike, hand-built in London.

“Using Brompton’s famous C Line folding frame as a base, Jack customized the design using his own selection of add-on components, including a Brookes Cambium saddle, as well as the stylish bronze wall high performance tires supplied by Schwalbe,” reads an official listing.

“It was then completed with a detailed visual design that adapts elements of the ‘Life Is Yours’ album to decorate the bike in a completely distinctive way.”

To be in with a chance of winning the bike, fans must enter the Crowdfunder prize draw for £5 (one ticket), £10 (three tickets) or £20 (eight tickets). You can buy yours here until August 25th.

All money raised will go to the Mental Health Foundation. See a preview image of the bike below.

“I’m delighted to have collaborated with Brompton on a one-of-a-kind Foals bike for the Mental Health Foundation,” Bevan said in a statement.

“I’ve been riding Bromptons for years and love their bikes so it was really cool to do something special with them, especially when we can raise money for a good cause.”

Brompton has previously built custom bikes for the likes of Radiohead, Phoebe Bridgers and LCD Soundsystem.

Searray will headline Latitude 2022 tomorrow night (July 23). Next January, the trio will embark on an intimate UK tour.

Speaking to NME at Mad Cool 2022 recently, Jack Bevan said the group’s live show feels “very exciting right now” after releasing their stunning seventh album ‘Life Is Yours’ last month.

“It feels really good to have these lighter pop songs that are lighter and more danceable, because we haven’t had a problem in the past with the end of the set,” he explained.

“The heavier, more intense ones have always come together to finish a set well. This is the first half of the set, in the past, where a lot of the lighter, more danceable songs haven’t we.”
