Honestly sub 7 is hardly a difficult target for any of the top end aero disc bikes. For anyone that decently knows how to choose components and tune their rides, probably any major manufacturer's bike will come in under 7 in size medium.

Any update to 2019 Campagnolo Bora wheels? Will they remain the same(width, decals, etc.)?

Nothing wrong with Boras already for a long time (brake track updates are nice, though). Bora WTO, announced this Spring, could be considered an upgrade for those who are interested in moooaaaar aerooooo, although practically not available anywhere at the moment anyway.

Nothing wrong too, I have One 50 Tubulars already and stiffness and weight is pretty impressive :)
But lets say 26mm width and redesigned decals would be nice improvement. Now I have to use 23mm tub in the front because of 24,2mm rim width...otherwise they are great wheels, I think best for this price.

Why is it Dura Ace wheels are so popular in the peloton but practically non-existant on the amateur scene? Too heavy? Too expensive? Both? I don't think I've ever seen a pair, not even the older C50s, at any FCI amateur event.

I thought he had panniers on the basebars for a second.

1) pros are sponsored by Shimano which makes them ride these wheels in a lot of cases;
2) the wheels are light in tubular versions but heavy in clinchers. The latter being what most of the amateurs would use.

^^ on top of it, Shimano's fiasco with the C40 being rebadged C35 (a whole thread here on WW as well) doesn't give any confidence they actually pay any significant attention to the wheel product line.

P.S. I've still got the old WH7850SL's (non convertible to 11sp), bombproof wheels
