1991 Marin Eldridge Grade


Dirt Disciple
This very original 1991 Marin came into the workshop directly from its previous life in Bosnia. After much delay due to shipping restrictions and COVID across Europe this gift from the East arrived just before Christmas and has since undergone a light refurb and small upgrades here and there but this is so original.

As Marin fans on here will know....Not a UK available colour-way back in 1991 - making this a reasonably rare specification on these shores - but a beautiful example of this mid range bike (and as an ‘in period’ Palisades Trail owner - this was two rungs up the product range ladder and way out of reach for me BITD)...interestingly the frame number confirms it was actually built in 1990 before being available in stores in 1991.

Can’t wait to ride it!
