My wife's 1976? Gitane "Interclub" came with (and still has), Pivo bar & stem. Nice enough that it always kind of bothered me that her less expensive then my (PX10), bike had such a nice bar/stem combo - compared to the AVA stuff on the Pug. I was always threatening to pull a swap but never did. Richard Rose (Toledo, Ohio)

Most (all?) pictures of Jacques Anquetil riding a Gitane show a Pivo stem (presumably bars too). My 1970ish Gitane Tour de France has a Pivo stem, as does a 1980ish gaspipe Gitane that I have. Indicates that at least one manufacturer thought that Pivo was good enough or cheap enough to fit to its bikes.
