The new Eldridge Grade 2 is Marin’s latest capable hardtail trail-ready mountain bike with modern trail geometry and fast-rolling 29" wheels.
Best-in-class frames and solid, serviceable spec make the Eldridge Grade a solid choice for the recreational rider looking to step up to modern geo and step deeper into mountain biking, and for the experienced rider in search of an update that doesn’t break the bank.
