I'll be taking possession of a GT Edge road bike tomorrow. Bpedia says it was made in 95 and 97 only and in TI. I see a few mentions of aluminum and steel versions. If I trust bp it must be a titanium 95; as the 2 versions are not remotely alike....

I've found Bikepedia to be quite accurate. Understand though that Bikepedia doesn't go older than 1993. So if Giant made a version of that bike before 1993, it won't be in their database.

What they list is usually accurate. They have many omissions on makes and models, of course. I googled "gt edge site:bikepedia.com" and it did produce a chromoly and aluminum version: http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=GT+Edge#sclient=psy&hl=en&source=hp&q=GT+Edge+site%3Abikepedia.com&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=19a59778de2c65e2&biw=1680&bih=931
They had a few Mavic Zap equipped models. Now that's cool.
+1 Bikepedia is pretty good, but missing quite a few bikes. And my guess is they used statistics from the various manufacturers' catalogs and brochures, which are not always accurate.
But it is the first place I check for anything 1993 or newer.
Google "site:bikepedia.com gt edge (http://www.google.com/#sclient=psy&hl=en&source=hp&q=site:bikepedia.com+gt+edge)"
They aren't labeled consistently.
