Uncle John Custom

Yes it's a blue Planet X Uncle John. I decided to sandblast away and then epoxy it matte black...followed by some re-decalling. It's got Ultegra 6700s, Crank Bros Egg Beaters, Carbon PRO Lite post and Bars, San Marco 2012 concor racing saddle (rock hard - not everyone's bag), Avid BB7s and Halo spin doctors laced into Halo Aerotrack rims (wheels are a tad heavy).I'm thinking of putting 50mm Aero carbon rims on it...does anyone know of any super lightweight sturdy 24H disc hubs that would take 700c lateral forces?

    Hey Aurelien Sweet ride....just a quick bit of advice from you- were did you get the new decals fro your respray?

  • Aurelien

    Unfortunately they are tubulars and I needed clinchers... I did eventually build a set. I found a pair of 20/24H disc hubs (miraculously!) and put these together: http://forums.roadbikereview.com/attachments/cyclocross/277174d1363271118-cyclocross-specific-chinese-carbon-s-works.jpg

    Surely just buy some planet x cx carbon 50s with discs on 24 spokes
