Xero wheelset at supergojorge

Has anyone bought or have any experience with these Xero wheels from supergo? They seem like such an incredible deal compared to other "boutique" wheels that I wonder if they're any good.

If you haven't seen them, they have Velocity deep rims and 16 spokes laced to a Formula hub.

I bought a set last month. They are an incredible deal. They weigh under 1650g total, are true and stiff. I can't imagine why somebody would spend 3 times their cost for Rolph Vector Comps. You can see them on my bike in the gallery:

I now have over 500 miles on a set that I purchased several months ago. I am a large rider, (245 lbs.) and was concerned about the durability of the hubs. No problems and the hubs are as smooth as when I purchased them. Supergo had a problem with a limited # of wheelsets where the rear spokes were breaking under heavier riders. None of mine had broken, but they sent me a replacement set of DT spokes and nipples. Allowed me up to 25$ to have them replaced. I did this myself in a friends bike shop. I have nothing but good things to say about Supergo and the wheelset itself. If I was to build another bike I wouldn't hesitate to buy another set. They are both stiff and true, also easy to true after replacing all the spokes. Spinup fast also.
