New 2000 Homegrown Pro

Hi All,  Long time lurker, first time poster.  I picked up this 2000 Homegrown pro couple weeks ago.  I've always wanted one.  I was looking for a Homegrown Factory, when I stubbled on this one.  It's in pretty good shape.  rode it today after a thorugh cleaning.  It may have been upgraded a little.  It has Rear XTR wheel, and XT shifters.  Also XTR V brakes.  I thought maybe it was a late model year build using 2001 parts, but hard to tell.  The front wheel is a cheap no name.  The tires are shot too.  One interesting thing is it has the N'Lightened head badge.  Could those be purchased seperately?

Yes, the N'Litened badges could be purchased separately. What error or issue are you having uploading pics?

It's with my Camera.  Not the website...Transfering files, I get some sort of error like the image can;t be rendered.  I might try a USB cable directly.

I did another ride today.  Same area, but different trails.  The bike is really sweet riding.  Might be the lower gears?  My 97 or 98 Schwinn Moab 1 doesn't seem to perform as well.

Yeah, It's a SID SL.  Not sure if that's good.  Never had a Sid.  Just Rock Shox Judy on older bikes.

SID (Superlight Integrated Design) is a great shock, in my opinion much better than a non-air shock. Super light and easy to rebuild. I have 3 mountain bikes with SID forks. I don't think you will find a better fork for that bike.

That's good to hear.  It seemed a little soft.  Thought maybe maybe it needed a rebuild.  However, it rode great.  Soaked up the bumps with ease.  Maybe that's the difference between the older Judy forks?

Not sure which SID that is, not enough is showing in the picture for me to guess the year, but you may need an adapter for the fork pump to put air in. One of my forks is an older one that needs the adapter. They are sold on a popular auction site. The air pressure should be according to rider weight. Here is a 2000 manual. Not sure if that is the year or not, but it will give you an idea. The SL is on page 30. Other years are available on-line. The air pressures differ between years. https://www.birota.ru/manuals/rockshox/service_guides/2000_SID_Service_I...

Here is an adapter I bought. https://www.ebay.com/itm/RockShox-Air-Valve-Bicycle-Adapter/362505920099...

Do you have pictures of the lowers? Is there an air chart on the fork leg in back?

Cool, Thanks for the info on the adapter.  I'll get some pics in the morn.  I should probably get better pics of the bike anyway.  I think it is a 2000 fork.  The bike seems mostly stock as described in the 200 schwinn catalog.
