Exit Art to Raffle David Byrne’s Bedazzled Bike

David Byrne is among our favorite design-minded, art-loving, musical multitaskers, and UnBeige HQ is home to the bulk of his discography (have you discovered the myriad joys of Uh-Oh, his 1992 solo album, for example?). So we’re particularly pleased to relay the glad tidings that our friends at New York cultural center Exit Art are preparing to raffle a bicycle bedazzled by Byrne. Underneath all those sparkles is a Biomega Copenhagen Bike, the first internationally available shaft-driven bicycle. The integrated transmission makes it durable and easy to maintain, leaving the rider free to focus on more important things, such as keeping the frame all a-shimmer and finding new, subtle ways to tell the world that this bike was encrusted with tiny crystals by David Byrne. Ready to win this thing? Simply point your browser here and purchase a raffle ticket, available through Thursday at noon for $20 each or $100 for six. In addition to the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you’re supporting Exit Art’s swell programming (Autotopia, for example), a ticket will get you an invitation to the party at which the raffle drawing will take place, but as Richard Nixon once said, “You do not have to be present to win.”
