Signal Cycles Jeff's Road

In today’s increasingly homogenized society, we are blessed that we are not restricted to the pigeon holes that corporate bicycle manufacturers wish to place us into. The beauty of a custom bike is that, after years of riding, you can develop your dream bike inside your mind and actually make it reality.

Matt Cardinal and Nate Meschke of Portland’s Signal Cycles are both artists of the canvas and the torch, so when Jeff Ball contracted them to build an orange frame with aqua, yellow and white highlights and matching racks and fenders, they weren’t fazed. A stainless steel head tube and fork crown spearhead the frame, and the cockpit consists of a custom stem. Don’t let the fenders and racks deceive you, this is a serious roadie with tight geometry. A bright and optimistic one at that.

Once you have crystallized your own dream ride, contact Signal Cycles through their website, where you can also drool over some of their past builds.

    Sooooooo cool. 

  • Frank

    wow that is really nice, love the lugged racks!

  • Really nice. I like a lot the colour scheme.

    But I have a question, is the front rack only attached to the fork in those two points? If you put something on it, maybe it will rotate around those points, scratching the fender.

      On the 6th photo you can see the other two points its attached to, under the brakes.

      One of the most beatiful bikes i’ve seen in bikeexif.

      • Thanks for the info. I haven´t seen that.

    • If you look at the picture with the front brake you will discover how low profile they attached it their to the fork…

  • Lord Elpus

    Why does this bike have no pedals?

  • With that long-trail geometry, what’s the point of the front rack? Also: the stem is elegant at the expense of good (strong, rigid) design (hence, not actually elegant). That’s a darned foolish place to put a clamping bolt.

    Wow, the crankset looks out of place.
