    My '06 Cannondale came with Grecals of some flavor. They weren't particularly lightweight, given the low spoke count. They lasted a few years, then the rear spokes started popping. And, because of the low count, when they break, the wheel is not usable - goes too far out of true. So, basically, no worse than other low-spoke wheels included as original wheels, but you can probably do better.
