What about bipedalism in Sahelanthropus?

No evidence in Sahelanthropus postcranial remains supporting habitual bipedalism

Researchers led by Marine Cazenave from the Max Planck Institute for evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, re-examined the fossil evidence for possible habitual bipedalism of Sahelanthropus who lived about seven million years ago. The new analysis demonstrate that both the external morphology and the endostructural signal are not consistent with habitual bipedalism.
