Need a new bike? You can bid on bikes designed by the Foo Fighters, Radiohead, and more

Okay, so this is a long shot (not to mention expensive), but there’s a chance for music fans to bid on any of 14 one-of-a-kind bicycles designed by some seriously big names.

Brompton Bikes, which is based out of London in the UK, approached a bunch of artists and had them design bikes that will be auctioned off to help out-of-work live music crews. Expected prices are around US$2,000.

The auction, which is called Keep on Rolling, went live today (May 28) and will continue until June 12. The bike designers are:

  • Foo Fighters (one each from Taylor Hawkins and Nate Mendel)
  • Radiohead
  • Rise Against
  • LCD Soundsystem
  • Phoebe Bridgers
  • Underworld
  • Sub Pop (the record label)
  • Neko Case
  • Dinosaur Jr.
  • Khruangbin
