1997 Homegrown Factory Hardtail XTR

The 1997 Homegrown Factory XTR is the first Homegrown actually made by Yeti, and was the top-of-the-line hardtail. The 7005 series frame can be distinguished from the 6061 Anodizing, Inc. frames by the lack of a gusset where the down tube joins the head tube as well as the forged chainstay yoke with rounded edges, while Anodizing, Inc. frames have an extruded yoke with square edges. Another unique aspect of this model is that the frame was offered with three different paint jobs, at three different prices.

The 1997 Homegrown Hardtail ESP introduced SRAM components to the Homegrown line for the first time, with Grip Shift shifters, ESP 9.0 rear derailleur, and SRAM 9.0 brake levers actuating Deore XT v-brakes. The cassette and front derailleur were Deore XT and the Rock Shox Judy SL on the Factory XTR hardtail was replaced by a Judy XC, also with 63mm travel.
