That was the team bike of renault-elf-gitane. Used from 1978-1983. It was not the first aero road bike though this was.http://velonews.competitor.com/2010/09/ ... ike_140221

Yes, I would say the first aero track bike could not be the first aero road bike #readingcomprehension

Yes, I think it was the first seriously used aero road bike, although it was only used for timetrails by the riders of the Renault-Gitane team.

I can tell you first hand that it is seriously streamlined too:

During the late 70's I had a Nishiki Aero-----wasn't really high end but all the tubing was definitely Aero tubing----nice bike but flexy if I remember right.

Pointing down a bit so it's meant to create lift? LOL

Is it meant to be more aero with the frame pump, like the P4 is faster with its bottle? Uci would probably frown on this bike as well...
