    thx. regards.


    Not trying to insult or be rude.  The chainstay yoke appears to be the machined style, not forged.  The Factory version is made of 7000 series aluminum, and not 6061.  The Factory seat-stays are radically tapered down to a small diameter at drop-outs.  Not certain of this, but none of my Factory frames have re-inforcement at headtube/downtube jucntion.  Not sure of this either, but I have not seen a Factory version hardtail of that generation with disc mounts.  Maybe the original owner was mistaken in his description to you?  Anyone else please comment.  I am not the expert.


    My ’98 Factory XT does not have a disc mount, has a forged yoke, and no gusset. I don’t have a picture of the chainstays and this is a poor shot of the BB yoke, but you get the idea.


    The disc mount is not called out in the catalog specs while the forged yoke is mentioned. It seems more like a ’99 Elite or Pro based on the specs in the catalogs and the frame itself. The Pro was a toned-down bassboat blue, so perhaps that is the source of the confusion.

    There’s certainly been some inconsistencies in the Homegrown lineup, so it would be interesting to hear the backstory on the frame before passing final judgment. Either way, it’s still a sweet frame that looks to be in good shape.


    That is correct the frame is a Homegrown Pro 99 model….


    Hi, I was wondering if she is still available?
