He used to ride a 56 Cervelo... a 56 Cannondale has 15.5 head tube, 54 has a 14..

Looks like its an SRM with blanked out Rotor rings... they must have some kind of contract with Rotor still.. surprised they aren't hollowgrams...

I suspect Team Cannondale-Garmin will be using Hollowgram cranks in 2015, otherwise there would be no need for Ryder to black out the Rotor name.

These Tinkoff guys look like they are wearing codpieces. Ugly as sin. Reminds me of the photo of that Columbian womens cycling team.

The last pic doesn't look like hes jammed up as much.... but his old cervelo had I think a 56.5 TT and a massive 14cm stem slammed 17cm under the seat!! The only way to get that slam on an EVO is a negative stem or a smaller size...

Cervelo's geoemetry makes Ryder's old stem choice less extreme. The 56cm Supersix has 12mm more reach compared to a 56 Rca and a stack height 22mm lower.

Ryder's Cdale looks a lot less awkward than his Cervelo did.

Quite messy though, so would have fit in nicely with Oleg's.

Gerrans has broken his collar bone mountain biking. He'll miss his Tour Down Under title defence and his Australian Championship jersey defence most likely.

Ryder still looks super "hunch-y".....

But whatever, seems to work for him. Also the beard is badass haha

man jealous that he can put his whole foot down, while still on the seat

i like the fact that ryder commits to the slammed lyfestyle. Cdale shop bro probably said, so u want a 58? and ryder went 'naw hoook me up with that 54 and -17 fsa stem'.

Ryder's been eating. ParisCarbon are you at a Maui Cycling camp? I was wondering how the whole I doped 10yrs ago thing was going to affect that business.
