    I am in the market for a new wheelet and have narrowed the search to a couple of carbon semi-aero wheelsets (~40 mm deep). The brands I am looking at; Zipp, Reynolds both offer a 16 front/20 rear spoke OR a 20 front/24 rear model.
    I weigh 165 and live in So Cal (roads are decent) and am planning on using these wheels as my everyday wheel. Also, I am mostly a spinner and prefer using higher cadence than pure power.
    My question is whether the 16/20 versions would be sufficient with my weight.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't have those specific wheels, but my wheels have the same number of spokes. 16/20. I live in socal too and i weigh about 175....you'll be fine. It says on the Zipp website the wheels are not recommended for people over 200 lbs.
