    A properly built wheel with 36 spokes would do the job.

    I made a mistake in the load. It's 400kg. Page 41 of "The Bicycle Wheel". Brandt built his wheels 15 gauge double butted spokes.

    If it is a square taper BB grease the tapers and use a torque wrench. You would be surprised at how much force is necessary to get 25 Pound feet of torque.

    Best advice so far.
    I have built wheels for a few heavy weights and find that 36 double butted spokes are the way to go. The biggest guy was 275 and wanted a set for touring. No complaints yet.
