Tinley, I think, or Mark Allen. It was not Dave Scott, though by the next year they all had them, and Scott dusted everyone again. As the fastest marathoner by 15 minutes, though, it may have been a moot point.
The first guy, though, cut off 11 minutes, I think, the first year, which is 1min per 10 miles. Enough to make everyone notice.
I think the 1989 Bicycle Guide references that year in an article about aero bars vs. drops.
We saw them here in some magazine, and had the local DuPont fabricator make a set out of aluminum stock.
Stuck them on a friend's Trek, and he won the state TT championship. '86 I think.
I think they were first used in the Ironman in '86, too. With no internet, you would see stuff on TV and not be able to find it, much less buy it.
I got a look at Trek's new TT/Tri only bike today, with the built in storage, cyclo, etc. Looks like a space ship.
He had SRAM Red, said he didn't like the Di2. The bike's been on the market for 2 months. Amazing thing.
