I bought one of these used recently, a stage 1 model. These frames were made in the US, but I don't know where. I believe the hardtail Homegrowns were built by Yeti, but I'm not sure about the full-suspension Rocket 88. 2001 was the last year of the "real" Schwinns, I believe. Does anybody know where my frame was built, and what the tubing is?

Thanks--

By 2001 they were all being made in Asia, but for whatever it's worth, the U.S. made frames from the 90's were also made by Control Tech.

The early rockets were made in the usa by anodizing inc I think.
The factory hardtails were yeti made. The others control tech.
