Which tubular rims


I am getting the last of my parts together to build up a late 80s Merckx Corsa Extra. I will be putting tubulars on this bike and to that end I found some NOS 32 hole Campy Victory Stradas which will be laced to 2006 Chorus hubs. My question is will these rims be strong enough for me at 205 lbs? My alternate choice is a set of Ambrosio Nemesis rims. Thanks.

victory stradas are a great all around tubular rim & totally appropriate for your merckx's vintage and riding weight. lace them X3 or X4 with a high quality butted spoke and you should be fine.
