FWIW: I'm 6-foot-4 and 240 pounds... and I ride a recumbent so the rear wheel takes a beating. I've built my own wheels for 30 years... usually 36 double-butted spokes. I haven't broken a single spoke since I learned to build them with high, even tension. Not one.

The DT Alpine spokes are probably overkill, but go for it...
