2001 Schwinn Homegrown

I hate doing this, but I gotta sell a bike.  I just bought a used 2007 Gary Fisher Caliber 29er.  With that I have 3 mtb's--the other two are a 2001 Schwinn Homegrown, and a 1999 Schwinn Moab which I turned into a singlespeed.  The Homegrown has been my favorite bike since I built it up in 2001, then pretty much rebuilt it in 2004/2005.  The last time I race it was 2005 and its been ridden about 10 times since then.   I don't want it to go, but at some point you just have to unload one.  Here's some pix.  Let me know if you are interested.  Specs listed under the photo's. (No, I don't ride in the snow and this bike has never been ridden in the snow--I took it out for the photo's.)
