I have a set of Aksiums that came stock on my bike; they're pigs, but they're just fine for my purposes (training, no racing to speak of). They'd be a great choice. The major difference between those and the others is that the Fulcrum uses 2:1 lacing on the back wheel, so the drive side has 2 spokes for every 1 on the non-drive side, and the Campy uses the very cool-looking but questionably useful G3 spoking pattern.
And hey, enjoy the new ride. I used to use Bike Therapy, but I've begun using Bicycle Revolutions
on 4th Street just south of Bainbridge. Bryan, the owner, is a former mechanic at Bike Therapy, and is just super cool. I cannot recommend him highly enough for mechanic work and wheelbuilding.
ADDED: enjoy the Ventos!
