Just got this Homegrown. 98 All Mountain LXT. There isn’t much left stock on it, most of the components have been changed out for different stuff. Not a big fan of the SRAM stuff, but I’ll get used to them. I already changed out the horrible saddle. One thing I’ve always wondered. Where were the carbon frames made? Everyone knows the aluminum bikes were either Yeti or Control Tech, but what about these? As a "Homegrown" it had to be somewhere in the US, right?
Huh, very interesting. I’ll have to check my old emails to see if Mark, former project manager for the Homegrown line, had any more info, but he definitely said they were Topkey and I’d hope he would know.
I wonder if that’s just because the rear triangle was at least American-made. Of course, they could have just been playing the same old game played by other manufacturers with labeling frames as American made when they were definitely not.
My hardtail is a 98 XT. It’s not a factory. It has XT components with an XTR rear derailleur. I posted updated pictures of it in the other thread.
Lets see yours! I would love to own a 98 or 99 Factory hardtail someday.
