This Song SL is hot, hot HOT!
Jerry commissioned us to build a versatile softail… and he wanted it to be light… and good-looking.
Jerry’s bike features an Easton Scandium down tube, which is pear shaped for added torsional stiffness, and our proprietary hourglass head tube to save a bit more weight. (thanks to Jerry for the trail pics)
Perhaps most notable is the addition of the tapered titanium seatstays, bonded to handbuilt aluminum lugs.
The dropouts are Ahrens Sliders, with hardware upgrade to socket head bolts and a brass jam nut. Notice the NDS torque brace and our proprietary (and very Sireny) hidden brake line routing.
We changed the decals over from gold to pink just before shipping it out. I think the bike looks even better with the pink accents-
And a friend just sent me this link today. Seems there’s a discussion on mtbr.com about it: Check it out here.
First ride: I got a message that read something like this:
“Built bike yesterday. Raced Today. 112.8 mi. The Song rocked! Field of 60+. Never even got passed. Won by 20+ minutes.”
Music to my ears. 🙂
