custom wheel building for aggressive heavy rider

i am looking for a super durable 135mm 36hole rear hub. any one got any suggestions on a solid hub that meets those criteria. also i want this hub to be able to accept the fattest dt spokes with a super hard steel rim...anyone built anything similar out there? i also want it to be vbrake. how is the atomlab pimp? anyone out there got any wheel knowledge they can dump?

all right stop, collaborate and listen:

fo shizzle m'nizzle. atom labs are stupid pimp. on a budget? go with a tight pair of atom GI series hubs. yeah i have built crap like this before.

bro man, not the fattest DT spokes...you want the phattest DT spokes! double butted is what i like...yeah, you know what i mean... huge difference and anything less than the best is a felony.

yo, how do you ekspect to catch insane dope air if you gots heavy a.$$ super hard steel rims dragging you down?? you will be falling on the concrete real fast. dude, you need hoops to be alumonimeenimum. light! quick to the point, to the point no faking. burnin’ ‘em, if you aint quick and nimble.

b 1tch, i have a sh1t load of info to dump. back up. don't go smacking v-brake up in here. you know you be asking for a whooping. you a trials dude or something? did you just fall from a wrinkle in time? v-brakes are from the 90's.

you sound lots like me. cause my style's like a chemical spill. like you, i like to keep my composure when it's time to get loose

i hopes this gets you on your way to building the phattest, most super hard rim for your unique riding style that money can buy.

Yo man -- i'm out of here! Word to your mother!
