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.

Nahanni and Sparrow’s Signal Cycles and TykeToter Seat
Nahanni and Sparrow's Signal Cycles and TykeToter Seat

The city of Portland and its bike-friendly streets need no introduction. People there have adapted their blocks to child-friendly play zones, their streets are lined with green bike lanes and there are even designated bicycle avenues.

Spending the day with your family, on bikes is a fairly common weekend activity. Especially for Benji from Poler and his wife Nahanni, who take their two daughters, Olive and Sparrow out for rides frequently.

While Olive is old enough for her own bike, Sparrow catches a ride with Nahanni on her Signal Cycles step through commuter via a contraption called the TykeToter.

I’ve never seen this product before, but it’s genius. The TykeToter goes on in seconds, can be used on any bike and gives the child an early introduction into balancing a bicycle.

These two women looked so happy scooting around the neighborhood that I had to shoot some photos!

Signal Cycles: Crusade Frames in Japan

It’s gotta feel great to work your ass off on a project and have it end splendidly. Or rather, begin splendidly upon completion. The guys at Signal have been in a production crunch zone for the past few weeks, preparing their new Crusade cross frames for a trip to Japan.

There’s a rad write-up on their site, as well as a few production photos and a race report from Osaka. Head over to the Signal blog and see the first and second post for yourself!

Something tells me this is only the beginning for the Signal Crusade…

Minor’s Signal Cross
Beautiful Bicycle: Minor's Signal Cross

I remember seeing this frame listed on the Signal Cycles blog as being for sale. It was a tad too big for me and besides, I didn’t need a new cross bike. Someone out there did and eventually, the frame made its way to Austin, Texas, where it was built up by Minor Baker, a local racer. When I saw it at the Bicycle Sport Shop Six Shooter, I thought it looked familiar and sure enough, it was Shannon Skerritt’s old pit bike! I’m stoked to see another piece of rad steel at home in Austin. Check out more in the Gallery!

Shop Visit: Signal Cycles

Nate Meschke and Matt Cardinal began Signal Cycles in 2007 and in that time, they’ve produced some absolutely beautiful bicycles. Not just commuters either. Recently, Matt’s Cross Bike made an appearance here and their Saltzman Road frames are lovely. Bottom line, if you’ve spent any time looking at Pacific Northwest builders, Signal has crossed your radar a few times. Matt was kind enough to meet with me on his day off, and let me shoot some photos in their space. Check out more below!
