Bleeding edge, I understand that in three directions:
1) like distros with packages compiled for 686-32 like crux, frugalware or arch (there are others, surely).
2) distros for 686-64 (Centos, Mepis, Mandriva, etc.).
3) distros under a working model that compiles every software package to your specific processor/s platform: gentoo, sourcemage, lunar, ututo etc.
But, yet, you have another hardware platforms like 64-bit PowerPC (Yellowdog 64). Gentoo ppc64 is very bleeding edge under that perspective. You don't want it to be named, but there have been a lot of bleeding people there in gentoo ppc64. :P
EDIT to add: And yet I forgot Debian Hurd. Which cannot be called a "linux" distro. Too much bleeding edge.
