Just a report - My red racer came with Campy Vento wheels. I had SERIOUS doubts about their suitability to my 260# stature because of the wheel's skimpy spoke count and some radial lacing. So far, I've been putting a steady 20 miles/day on them (and my 55 mile "ride your age" sortie). Despite potholes, occasional off-pavement detours, and one curb-hop (unexpected, but necessary) the wheels are true and round!!! I'm not ready to say that Jobst Brandt was wrong, but Campagnolo has certainly found a way to make the Ventos much stronger than they look!
The original 23 mm Continental tires had to go, though - one had the wire bead poke through the rubber molding and puncture the tube. The other Continental pulled a section of bead out of the rim hook - although the tire didn't blow, it could have... I replaced the tires with some Specialized stuff from the LBS (same 23 mm width). So far so good!
Although the Campy Ventos are over four pounds (too heavy for "serious" racers), they seem to be both cool looking and sturdy enough for me!
