My Aero (SRA) is from 1983 but mostly the same. A wonderful bike. In all respects. I see some references of them being "twitchy" but at least mine is not. Frame detailing and paint is top notch.

I assume my aerodynamic model is a bit later model than in the article. I agree, the bike is a bit twitchy compared to other bikes.
