Ok, a choice at least and I'm taking opinions.

I'm building up a used frame I picked up with a combination of parts from the garage and new gear (a fair bit of new). I'm getting some wheels. The LBS is offering a good deal on some wheels they built in house with CXP33 rims, 14/15 butted spokes, and chorus hubs--300 bucks. They also have a pair of Campy Eurus wheels which they have lightly demoed--the wheels look new. 450 bucks. I'm not racing anymore, but I still like light wheels (my unreachable ideal is super light and super sturdy wheels that never need truing--I'm willing to trade a bit of light for dependable here in the world). Also, I'm trying to keep the cost in line on this project so please don't suggest alternatives that cost more than either of these.
