    Xero Lite XSR3 vs Shimano RS11 wheels

    Wondering if anyone has opinions on the relative merits of Xero Lite XSR3 vs Shimano RS11 wheels. I now have two road bikes (Giant OCR, Cannondale Synapse) and these are the stock wheels they came with. Wondering which ones I should keep if I downsize.
    I ride 15-20 miles a day and longer rides on the weekend, 95% pavement, and Iím pretty light.

    Never heard of Xero Lite XSR3 but if the pic in the link below is really them I would definitely dump those ahead of any Shimano wheel due to the stupid spoke pattern.

    Keep the Shmano RS11's, dump the Xero Lite XSR3's. That spoke pattern could become problematic as it doesn't spread the stresses around like a normal spoke pattern does.
