    Homegrown Frame?

    Recently picked up a Homegrown frame. It has a tomato etched above the dropout. I have'nt heard anyone mention this before.

    Yep, Homegrowns have that, or at least my Sweetspot does. I remember thinking that was pretty cool when I took the frame out of the Supergo box in '99. Due to the design of the bike, my 4 Banger doesn't have those.

    Got mine from a US seller - possibly Jersey Cycles or something similar, I don't recall, but I avoided the Hong Kong sellers. It worked after some light modification (I decided to grind down the "bumper" that touches the seatstay to clear the weld between the dropout and stay), but it has a serious drawback that I didn't think was serious until it got me twice in one ride in AZ. It is incapable of supporting a rearward load. "Big deal, you're pedaling forward." Well, yeah, up until you get faced on a climb and instinctively grab the brakes to stop from falling backwards. ZING! Now your adapter is rotated away from the seat stay and you've scraped up your dropout, and now you're digging your 5mm out of your backpack.

    Is that frame in the original post the one from Ebay, the seller thought was a 2000? Wanted to bid on that. Cool in raw aluminum (if the same frame)

    Spent that money on a RIsse Genesis. I 'll start building the bike parts fund back up and be looking for a frame or hardtail HG by this summer.
