    I believe that Moab is a 98...wow, this is the first time I have looked at this thread, and it brings back alot of cool memories...My first "real" mtb was a 96 Mesa GSX with a RS quadra 5 that was 2 sizes to big. I got that bike in 98 and I fell in love with all of the bikes in the 98 catalog. I still think about looking for a bass boat painted homegrown to build up......

    My 1997 Homegrown Straight 6!

    I usually post on the Giant boards, but have recently had time to take pics of my old Schwinn. I have had her for almost 10 years which is forever in the mtn bike world. I have gone through atleast 4 XC bikes in that time. Over the years, I have made some modifications. In 1998 I replaced the 4 inch RockShox DHO(that was the only commercially available DH fork of the day in 1997) with at Boxxer (6in). Back in 2002 I scored a Pro-deluxe pull shock (2.75 instead of the Coupe Deluxe 2.0) off of a destroyed Yeti DH-8 and it totally works. The travel is somewhere between 6 and 7 inches, if I had to guess. I had to dial the trunion mount all the way down on the shock for it to fit. This pushed the swing arm all of the way down and raised the BB to15 inches. So, I built a 24in rim for the rear and the BB is now at a respectable 14 inches. Almost all of the stickers have come off, but the finish is still sparkly (Bass Boat Blue). I have raced it all over the Southeast and I always get comments about how old it is. I occasionally see riders younger than the bike and they don't believe me. I hope to have it for many years to come.

    Yes those are the original Hope C2 brakes, 185mm in the front and 140mm in the back.

    My Rocket Pro

    This is the stock photo, but I have since added a GPS and carbon fiber handlebars. I need to take a glamour photo of it.

    '05 Mesa Schwinn Mesa GSD

    I got this bike for a steal on ebay a few months ago to serve as my winter ride. The geometry fit me so well and was so comfortable I decided to go with some upgrades. The major ones so far have been the Rock Shox Revelation Fork (Awesome by the way),XT front and rear Derailleurs, and Avid Juicy 7's. I installed the bashguard for extra clearance. My third chainring kept getting caught on things here in the rocky, rooty New England terrain.....here's the pics.

    I don't think disc brakes would have helped in that situation in the first pic!

    No need for brakes that is at the bottom of a fairly large extreemely loose sand down hill. Takes a good bit of practice to make it down and the creek is the reward. Before fourwheelers found the trail you could jump the creek but now its either ride a 6' sewer pipe (not really an option), or put the bike on the back and give it a ride as you wade across.

    2001 Homegrown Pro. This was the last model year and one of the last ones I could find anywhere in the US after Schwinn was bought by Pacific.

    I rode the crap out of it for four yrs after buying a new bike a year or so ago. Just in the last couple months I've resurrected the Schwinn for winter riding / cross racing. I just put 1.5" tires and disc brakes on it. What an awesome bike. I'm really glad I'm riding it again. I'm seriously considering putting some cash into a good wheelset and Fox fork to really get this bike in prime condition for some serious riding again.

    RIP quality Schwinns

    Nice to see all the sweet Schwinns still around. I knew about the Homegrowns being very quick and light but not how cool the longer travel stuff was! Anyway, here's my 2001 Homegrown Comp. Stock here but I put some carbon risers on it. Always torn between this one and my Bianchi Denali (steel, Marz MXR...) For everyone that has experience with the Homegrown/Marzocchi combo, check my other thread. I was thinking about switching off the Judy Race for my Bianchi's 2002 MXR Air. The Judy is smoother, but heavier and flexier too.

    A lilttle difficult run action for the NoVA folks... I really need to take some pics of the great trailage down here in the Shenandoah Valley. Sorry for the poor pics I'll get better

    I picked this up for 20 bucks a few weeks ago!

    1995 Schwinn - almost like new old stock. Everything is original on it and barely used - maybe someone rode it around the street or something but that's about it.

    I had that exact bike just a different color. It had a ton of miles on it and treated me real well. I think I paid $500 new in 95 or 96. Good find for $20.00 enjoy!
