I just spent a very enjoyable few minutes reading this thread, so I registered and thought I'd post. I bought my "The Edge XT" new in about 1991. I think it's a 1990 model and I got it cheaper from Evans mail order as a previous year's model. I bought it with the insurance money when my clockwork got stolen.
I still ride it now when I want to get out with the kids, often towing a couple of them on a tandem trail-a-bike.
It's a great ride, could probably do with some TLC, but it seems pretty bullet proof, the groupset too is amazing I think. Sadly in total I've not done that many miles on it. Not that long after I bought it I got a driving licence and then shortly after that moved to London and was to scared to cycle. After 20 years I've finally got into cycling again and perversely cycle a lot in London now, but not on this bike.
Other bikes I run:-
2008 Kona Dew - bought a few weeks ago as a commuter on gumtree for £56. I'm actually loving this bike! I leave it chained up in Croydon overnight, hence the minimal spend.
2010 Specialized Allez - bought for £200 in 2014 with free shoes, pump, clip on aerobars and cyclops turbo. Got me back into cycling again.
2013 Colnago CLX 3.0 - treated myself to a nice 2ndhand carbon road bike in May 2016 - killed it in a car crash in Sept 2016. I've had the frame repaired and learning to build wheels to replace a rim so will try and build this bike back up again soon.
