Pedal is not at the bottom and he looks like he's sitting on the front of his seat . I think he looks fine.

Shoulda seen Gadret on his TT bike at the Giro start. Most amusing, took me back to the 'best' of Virenque.

Not even close to the biggest "S5" size, but probably as Ryder can go without needing a stem with a sever drop to it.

Here is a picture of the S5 in 61, quite a bit bigger than what Ryder is riding: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-co3Ui-fFO8M/T ... ize_61.jpg
