Schwinn Homegrown Frame identification game

Hi!

Please help me identify this 1997 or 1998 Schwinn Homegrown frame.

I believe it is a "Homegrown Factory Team" frameset. Made from Easton ProGram aluminum and not the 7005 stock tubes that all other Yeti made Homegrown frames used.

What's the difference? Anyone know?

thanks!

I am sorry I cannot be of more help, but just thought I'd add that my 1995 Homegrown has Easton ProGram aluminum and from my own research I believe it was made at the YETI factory.

tears come to my eyes when I think about what has become of Schwinn
