fixed/free mtb wheelset

i just acquired a karate monkey frameset (29er) and i'm trying to put together a fixed/free rear wheel. i've never put a mtb together before, so i find myself in need of advice. i am planning to use this bike as a commuter but also have fun with it on the trails, so i want a versatile rim that can take a range of tire widths, from medium to fatty. in terms of hubs, i heard the new surly fixed/free is a sure bet, but if anyone has other suggestions i would love to hear them. also, where should i look to find such a wheelset, aside from my local shop, which over charges beyond comprehension.

The Sun Rhynolite 700c rim is durable and proven. ANYTHING from Surly is going to be durable. Don't count on "weight savings" from either offering.
