have anything good or bad to say about Spinergy Xaero wheels? I am considering changing wheels to save some weight and to smooth out the ride some. These wheels have the new PBO fiber spokes which supposedly dampen the ride. They are also listed at1600gm for the pair.
Let me be the only one to provide positive informationMike

I've got about 4500 on my Xaeros and really like them. I weigh 175 and ride them on some pretty rough roads in L.A. County. They climb very well and handle just about all terrain nicely. Sidewinds are noticeable, but that's probably the case with just about any rim with an aero profile. My hubs have been problem-free and roll very nicely.

With all of this said, I've also heard a lot of bad reviews of Xaeros, especially problems with the Edco hubs failing. I've also read of many negative experiences with Spinergy customer services. Finally, although I've never weighed my wheels, people who have done so generally report that the wheels are pretty substantially over the advertised weight.

What to do now?
