In the February 1996 issue we chose to feature a “Shootout Special” that took a look at two bikes that tout- ed the coveted made-in-the-USA label. The MBA crew decided it was time to wave the American flag and gather up Schwinn’s and GT’s high-end, full-suspension bikes and hammer them in a head-to-head shootout. The bikes we chose were the Schwinn Homegrown XT and the GT LTS-1, both of which performed flawlessly throughout our testing period, proving that off-the-shelf, fully suspended mountain bikes had finally come into their own.
