This 1992 Marin Eldridge Grade has been re-built from the frame up. The frame is Tange MTB Ultralight Triple Butted chromoly, custom designed for Marin, and is matched with a super-light chromoly (750g) Marin Rockstar Fork. A mix of componentry includes Shimano Tiagra rear derailleurs and Shimano SLX front deraileur, with Tiagra 9-sp brifters. Crankset is TruVative TrueShft 5D 42-32-22, with 172.5 crankarms and PowerPro Isis bottom bracket. Brakes are Avid Shorty4 cantilevers. A new Tange-Seiki headset was installed along with the new Uno dirt-drop bar and adjustable stem. Also installed are new cables and cable housings. I added inline brake cable adjusters to simplify canti brake adjustment, and an inline front derailleur adjuster. Saddle is a WTB Speed-V and seat post is a Marin Lite alloy. Rims are Weinman front and Alexrim rear. Wheels have been trued and spin smoothly. SRAM 9-sp cassette 13-34 cogs. Tires are new InnovaPro Cross Fit 26x2.0 with tan sidewalls design for hardpack trails. Sycamore Canyon or Sulphur Mountain come to mind. Frame size is 15.5” with a 28.5” standover and 22.5” effective top tube. Good fit for a rider 5’6” to 5’9”. Cosmetically there are a few nicks and chips, but nothing major. Bike weighs 25lbs. I also have a Blackburn rear rack which would be good for bike-packing. PRICE IS FIRM

Cash, Zelle, Venmo, or major credit cards accepted. No personal checks.
