Just curious which years, and frames had the extruded chainstay bridge.

The non-Factory hardtails from '96 until the 2001. The 2000-2001 base Homegrown falls in there but was a bit of an oddball.

Interesting.  So those are the heavier 3.4lb frames?

Yes, though the increased weight was also a function of the different aluminum alloy/tube butting, head tube-down tube gusset that wasn't on the Factory frames, etc. The 2000-2001 frames with extruded bridge were advertised as sub-3 pounds.
