GT Edge Dura Ace

The bike has Henry James Drop outs, is fillet braised and has Reynolds 853 tubing. It is incredibly light and stiff, it has an amazing ride quality. They made them at the Tech Shop facility in Longmont, CO. USA. Mine is SN :98E077. The 77th E for Edge made in the tech shop in 1998. They were making less than several hundred a year custom to order. The metallic blue paint is in fantastic shape... Buy it before I decide to keep it forever!! $600 Canadian

Wonderful blue color. I am unfortunately unfamiliar with these bikes; but fortunately I have recently acquired a rather dirty frame with missing components, etc. Are all the "Edge" forks carbon? My fork doesn't sound metallic when lightly tapped. I think my frame is a little earlier model than yours, that is if mine is an "Edge" in the first place. The top tube extension at the saddle is flat as opposed to rounded. It's a white frame with a yellow "aero blade" fork. It has a odd serial number compared to yours starting "SAT" then 4 numbers. I don't know if that meant anything since it's got a "Saturn" logo decal on it. Has 853 tubing, but it doesn't hold a magnet (is Reynolds 853 non-magnetic steel like some stainless steel?) to the frame or fork. Full D-A group (7400 series I believe), but no wheelset. It has a "Mavic" logo decal so I'm assuming that the rims were Mavic and possibly the hubs also."Continental" logo decal so Conti rubber originally. I don't know if this was some special giveaway offer related to Saturn car purchases. There's a decal with the name "Brian Walton" on the top tube; assuming it to be a previous owner. I'm just getting ready to clean and build up in the next week. I can't wait to try out this unique style frame. I've never ridden on a 853 frame either; should be interesting. I'll see if I have a picture to post. Do you know when the "Edge" frame was first produced? I'd like to determine the year but I've yet to see the same bike posted with any identifying info.

This is a very special bike indeed. This was raced by Canadian Pro Cyclist Brian Walton when Team Saturn was racing GT bikes in 1997 and 1998. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brian_Wal...

Nice! Never seen a blue one before. Yours has different numbering convention form mine. Wonder if they did them different between steel and ti.

I'm sure the SN would be a bit different with the TI bike! Wow yours looks awesome. Must be a blast to ride!!! I sold mine, but I would probably have built it up with modern parts like yours if I kept mine!
