Gipiemme is pretty rare here in the US, so I suspect you won't get an answer on these wheels.
I have one of their saddles, and it is perfect for me and very well made. It is like a shorter Selle Italia. Aussie friend of mine had a pair of wheels from the 80's made by them. He swore by them 'till the OpenPro came out. He still has the red leather stitched saddle, 20+ years and still going strong.
Gotta say they make sweet gear, very Euro, great logo, I'd love to buy a pair of the Grecal's myself. If you do end up buying them, let us know. Maybe more people will buy it.
BTW where were you going to get them from? Not too many people carry their stuff.
