Another thing to think about with your wheel is that the Xtracycle stretches your bike out for better weight distribution, so you may find that a 36h wheel will be sufficiently "over-engineered" for your needs. Not to talk you into anything, but if you really like the idea of an IGH, it seems like there really may not be much of a sacrifice as far as sturdiness goes. You might see what others are using and how their bikes are holding up.
