Maybe not rare or collectible, but an 89 Marin Eldridge Grade (or is it a 90?) rides sooo sweet, and the perfect poster child for the late 80's MTB scene. And it's a perfect double butted Tange chromoly counterpart to my Fervor. Unfortunately, it looks like the GF is claiming this one (just another excuse to buy another bike-right?)
Here's some pre-op pics:
BTW, I've got some yellowing on the paint, any fixes?Last edited by longfinkillie; 05-02-2011 at 01:44 PM.

- 75I remember riding Eldridge grade when it was virtually a singletrack (from erosion). Good stuff.

Could be the oldest I've seenThe GF just got word from Tom @Marin bikes that the bike dates 87-89. Probably the oldest Eldridge I've seen so far.
