I don't know whether they build their wheels or anything about the quality of workmanship, but the price blue sky has is probably less than what you'd pay for the hubs, rims, and spokes if you built the wheel yourself. My advice is to buy the wheels, and ride them a few hundred miles before you do any long tours. The worst case is that the build quality is poor, and then you have to pay your LBS $50 to true and tension them - and you've still got a decent wheelset at a pretty good price.
