Since I recently had the pleasure of getting my hands on a 01' comp, to replace the one in the story below, I am now looking for a 17 inch for my wife so that she can also experience one of the greatest hard tails ever made.
/*--------------- I had my 2001 Homegrown Comp stolen out of my garage, in broad daylight, awhile back. I see this guy with my bike 4 years later, it had been painted beige, but I recognized all the after market parts that I had outfitted it with. Turns out, he got it after it had been seized by the cops in a raid. They put it up for auction where he got it for "dirt cheap" he said. He then says he wants 500 bucks for me to get "MY" bike back. The Cops won't do anything even though I have all the paperwork, literature, Photos of me on the bike, and I even have the leftover bit of plastic from when I added the chain stay protector to enter for forensics file (the ends will match up no doubt). Now I can't find the guy to try and buy it back. I just want my rosebud back, or maybe her cousin.
Sleepless in my garage ---------------*/
