Signal Cycles: The Pulse Road Bike
DSCF1981

The Pulse is Signal’s third production bike but you could probably say it’s their fastest. This bike just exudes speed, even sitting in the photo studio.

Signal went with a tapered Enve fork with a tapered headtube, double oversize Columbus Life tubes and pulled it all together in a tight, zippy geometry.

Available in the stock sizes additional options to play with like paint colors, component kits, disc brakes and Di2.

Prices start at $2500 for frame, fork and Chris King headset. Completes from $4500.

Check out more below and contact Signal for ordering options.

What I didn’t know was that this guy goes out on some REALLY HUGE days to take these shots of scenic wonder and most of the time he does it alone.
