    I've heard good things about handspun, you'll probably get a very good wheel. At 36 spokes it is easier to make it bombproof. And Dyad should be fine. I run Dyads with Marathon Supreme 700x50 on my...

    I like those ideas, especially #2 . If the rack lockbox is slim and elegant enough, maybe it won't even look like it contains any storage at all; hidden keyhole, etc.
