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
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. We 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. Recently, women's fashion giant, Anthropologie, commissioned Signal to design and fabricate a picnic bike that is currently sold on their website.
Each Signal project is focused on creating the
perfect bike for the discerning customer and our goal is to help you realize
all your grand ambitions. Send us an email with any questions you may have for
your new bike or design idea. We are always willing to chat!
