The bigger question in my mind is, why aren't these wheels good for going tubeless? Campagnolo says no, but their construction seems to suggest they'd be fine... The only hole is the valve stem, wouldn't a TL tire seal really well if you installed a TL valve?
The manual says 240lb max, but that riders 180+ should be more vigilant and inspect the wheels more frequently. FWIW Iím ~185 and ride 25mm tires @~90 psi. ~10k miles in and no issues
