BEST FOR: Metalheads and nineties throwbacks.

THE TEST: The Edge Ti might look just like its storied 20-year-old predecessor, but GT has updated the triple-triangle design with modern geometry, a tapered headtube, and a carbon fork. (Though, oddly, it stuck with a threaded bottom bracket.) The result is a classy, well-balanced steed that felt as much at home on country-road tours as it did in the peloton. The titanium frame has a gentle feel, yet accelerations were crisp. Most people loved the Campagnolo Super Record 11 parts on our test bike, minus a few complaints about reaching the thumb shifter in the drops.

THE VERDICT: Heritage looks; modern speed and comfort. 16.1 lbs
