Oooh oooh I have Xeros...JUST TOOK THEM OFF.
For general riding you dont' want a low spoke count wheel. May I suggest the wheels I just got and so far love. Shimano 105 hubs, Salsa Delgado Cross rims, 32 spokes laced 3 cross, 14/15/15 DT Swiss spokes. You can get these HAND built for $250 from Speedgoat.com. Want another hub? They can do that. Want another spoke? They can do that too. Other popular choices in the price range would be Ultegra hubs laced to Open Pros (which are another great choice but a bit less (not much) durable. That set would be more of a roadie wheel then the Salsa which is a CX wheel that is great for commuting and touring as well due to it's durability. I found myself truing my Xeros every couple of months with daily riding.
