    Hey there. New to this site (not new to Homegrowns though).

    From 98-04 I rode a blue/silver factory frame. Man did I love that bike and man did I put it through the paces. Since, I have owned a couple Santa Cruz full suspension rigs and since ’13 I have really been enjoying a Yeti ASR5c. For about the past 10 years I have been combing ebay and this site for a 21″ project frame to build up. It had to be a two-toned yeti-built factory frame like my first Homegrown. Low and behold this past September I found one on eBay. The frame was in immaculate condition. My expectation was to source parts for this over the next 6 months or so…..I got too excited and a little over a month later I have her built-up. She’s running a newer XTR 1×10, XTR M950/952 levers/brakes, Fox Float 100 w/ new paint and decals, handbuilt King Classic Hubs w/ Velocity AeroHeats, Thomson cockpit, Oury grips (of course), King headset, WTB Volt saddle.

    Looking forward to the first ride this weekend.

    Best Regards,
    Tony

    That’s a nice build. Love the King hub and Fox Fork, and modern bits on a vintage frame.

    Thanks guys! I am really happy with how it turned out.
    I do not have a FB account so can’t post there. Be my guest if you want to post it.
