Signal Cycles, while no stranger to a race bike, builds a lot of frames designed for wide tire clearance. For example, their other production bike, The Saltzman, fits 32c tires for nice plush ride. For a change of pace, and a fast pace at that, their third production model, the Pulse, is a fast road race bike ready to take on any climb, descend any mountain, and still be fit for a century gran fondo ride.
Details on the Pulse past the break.
For starters, the bike looks the business. The tight geometry, tapered headtube, and killer paint options really make it a standout choice if you are in the market for a high end road bike.
The Pulse is constructed of double oversized Columbus Life tubing. It comes with a 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 tapered Enve fork that runs through a continuously tapered Paragon Machine Works headtube. It is available in stock sizing ranging from 50cm to 60cm. It can be had with rim or disc brake options, and can be set up for either mechanical or electronic drivetrains.
The Pulse is available as a frame set that includes the Enve fork and a Chris King headset for $2500. Full builds start at just $4500. For more info visit the Signal Cycles website
