If you want a lock big enough for the rear wheel and frame, the standard Kryptonite New York lock should do the trick. The shackle's not quite as thick, 16mm instead of 18mm.

If you don't want to give up the NYF's 18mm shackle thickness, Kryptonite does make a super-sized version of it, the M18-WL: I had one of these. It was spectacularly heavy, the kind of lock you leave behind at work instead of carrying it along.

As an alternative, you might consider two lesser locks, maybe an Evolution Series 4 standard-size U-lock plus one of those new Evolution Series 4 chain locks: If you can find two strong poles 1 meter apart, you can lock to two separate poles so they're not a weak point either. And if you won't need top security for a particular errand, you can take along just one or the other.
