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?
