I just listed this bike on Craigslist today. It’s totally legit. I’m looking to sell it for personal reasons. I hate to see it go, but I know if I list it here that it might go to a good home. Please contact me if you are interested. http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/4044104564.html
Obviously, shipping and delivery and price are all negotiable.
I don’t want to burst your bubble but that frame was made by Anodizing Inc. Short version: stamped dropouts instead of forged, extruded chain stay yoke instead of forged, gusset at downtube/head tube junction, all relating back to the Homegrown XT being a 6061 frame. Long version.
Good luck with the sale, just want to make sure everyone knows what they’re looking at, in case Yeti-made is important to someone.
Thanks for replying, I guess I didn’t know as much about the frame as I had initially thought. It’s a great bike and rides great, I was just told by the original owner (who gifted it to me) that it was made by yeti. He bought it in 1997. It’s 19″. And that it’s worth quite a bit now that Schwinn is no more. Can you tell me any more about the frame? Maybe how much you think it’s worth??
No worries, there’s a lot of misinformation out there. I only really got everything confirmed a couple weeks ago.
In terms of value, I haven’t been super active in looking at hardtails lately but given the model and condition I’d say you won’t be too happy with any offers you’ll probably get. I would expect more on the order of $300-$400. Might want to check ebay completed listings for a better reference too.
