    Big guy + big kid = bigger wheel?

    Hi,

    I just bought a second-hand Fuji Touring Series III and plan on carrying my kid on a back rack mounted baby seat.

    I weigh around 220lb, and my kid around 30lb (maybe a bit more). I was wondering if I should already think of getting a sturdier back wheel to carry our combined weight? Maybe a 48 spokes instead of 36...
    Are there any fixed recommendations in that respect?

    Thanks.
