No experience with the Campys, but I just got a set of Deep V's (28 F&R) and love them. They look way better with the cheesy stickers removed--at least my black ones sure do! As far as weight goes, when us Clyde types weigh by definition at least 10 times more than the bike, how much diff does a few grams really make? I bought mine to replace the Gipiemme T Tre 30's(24 F&R) that came with my bike after breaking 2 spokes on the rear in the space of 9 days and having to true both wheels a couple of times. Ironically, while I was waiting for the Deep V's to show up, the Gipiemmes stopped moving and breaking spokes--go figure. Luckily, my old 80's Summit steel bike has wide enough rear dropouts to accomodate the Gipiemme, so that bike gets to go from 12 speeds with a freewheel to 18 with a cassette. Woo-hoo!
