I’ve always had a deep connection to bicycles and after years of working in all capacities at several bike shops I decided to start my own bicycle company, Signal Cycles. The company was a fusion of my love of bikes coupled with an intense desire to create the best possible riding experience for my customers. Each bike is one of a kind and the result of many conversations and measurements.
These are examples of bikes I built at Signal Cycles. The process involved working with customers to determine the correct build for the type of riding they were planning on doing. I would suggest components that would work with the build, then using body measurements I would draw a full scale plan of the bike. Tubing was selected based on riding style and size of the customer and the bike was built. When the frame and components were ready to send to the painters I created paint documents with the correct color codes that were sent along to insure the final paint job was what we were expecting.
I was contacted by Anthropologie about making a bike exclusively for their stores. We decided to make a bike with a picnic basket integrated into the design. I designed the frame and fork, made all the component decisions, and managed the rest of the project including using Anthropologie’s extensive vender PO system. It was a very involved process.
