Signal Pulse won Bicycling Magazine Editor’s Choice award in 2015. Located in Portland, Oregon, United States, Signal Cycles was formed in the fall of 2007, as two recent art school grads and long time bike shop employees came together to get creative. At first a night and weekend hobby, early projects helped Signal quickly gain attention and Nate Meschke and Matt Cardinal officially opened Signal’s doors in February of 2008.
Over the years Signal has collected awards, been featured in significant press, and directed unique design commissions and collaborations. Signal won the “Best City Bike” award at the 2011 North American Handbuilt Bike Show. They have worked with Rapha, supplying a bike for their Continental team. In 2011 Signal joined forces with global industrial design firm, Ziba, to create the “ultimate utility bike” for the Oregon Manifest challenge. The entire six month collaboration was chronicled on the design super site Core 77. In 2012, women’s fashion giant, Anthropologie, commissioned Signal to design and fabricate a small collection picnic bikes that were sold on their website.
