GT Bicycles first introduced the limited edition Edge Ti back in 1995. Now GT is bringing it back for 2013 in limited quantities. The 3-2.5 titanium frame is immediately identifiable as a GT thanks to the signature triple triangle seatstay junction.
GT did a good job of sensible job of using new standards where appropriate and sticking with the tried and true when there was little to be gained.
The Edge Ti has a beautifully shaped tapered headtube, the front of which is reinforced and flattened for additional front-end stiffness.
On the other hand, GT chose to stick with a traditional threaded 68mm bottom bracket shell, citing its reliability.
The Edge Ti will be available as a frame fork and headset for $2,000.
The Corsa is a new model for GT. It is designed to for the everyday road rider. Use it to commute Monday through Friday, then load it up for light-duty touring on the weekend.
Pictured here is the top bike in the line, the Corsa One. It is spec’d with 10-speed Shimano Tiagra triple and a wide range 12-30 cassette.
The bassboat blue paint really pops in the sun. The painted to match stem is a nice touch. The Corsa One will retail for $1,000.
Fixed gears are not for everyone. Some riders like the clean lines and simplicity but still want to coast.
Enter the Meatball. It’s not a singlespeed; the Meatball uses SRAM’s Automatix two-speed coaster brake hub. There’s no shifter, no cables or external adjustments. The Automatix changes gears when the rider reaches a certain speed.
The Meatball retails for $700.Tweet Print
