Lynn: GT is bringing back the titanium Edge road bike

See the second section in the link below.  I have to admit that I like the glossy looks of your current Titanium Edge better.

I agree.  This bike is very drab looking.  I'd be tempted to take the frame to an autobody paint shop and have them spray a clear coat on it.

Otherwise, the bike should be an awesome ride.  It does have the appearance that it means business, and is not to be messed with.  It would probably beat up on all the shiny carbon bikes on the rack if it could.

I liked the GT guy's comment that it was not a soft ride, but not harsh and punishing either.  I'm encouraged that there is still interest and a market for Ti and Reynolds frames out there, that large companies are still committed to these, and that it's not all aluminum at the low and middle price range, and not all carbon at the top.  Nice to have a choice.

I agree, I like the shinier version better.
