Looks to be at least a 19” frame. Did you measure center of BB to top of seat tube (that’s how these should be measured)? Geometry charts in catalog scans or individual model pages if you needd them.
Good luck with the sale-looks sweet.

Hey, thanks for the heads up. I re-measured the frame this morning, and you were adsolutely correct. It measuers 17” from the center of the BB to the top of the top tube, but 19” from the center of the BB to the top of the seat tube. I’ve updated the listing accordingly. Thanks again!

That is a 1996 Schwinn S[9Six], not a Homegrown. You can tell from the brake cable hanger on the rear triangle. The first generation (1gen) Homegrown Sweetspot was only made in 1995 and it used a funky pivoting cable stop to actuate the rear brake.

In addition, I suspect this was the S[9Six] which used a cromoly front triangle. You can easily check that with a magnet.

Good eyes, Zoltan. I was thinking the front triangle tubing seemed more steel-like than aluminum based on tubing size.
