What about upgrading to a tough rim and and 10ga spokes ?
The stealth bombers use fat ass spokes that look to be 10ga - surely they'd suffice ?
My dad had a similar response to your neighbor about my bike, and I was similarly worried when after doing a lap of the block he disappeared for 5 minutes. Like your neighbor he was off enjoying it and came back with a big EV grin. He's ridden bikes all his life and came back saying how brilliant it is and has more guts than a few small motorbikes he's ridden, but then told me off saying it was too dangerous and that I'd get myself in strife building them for other people. heh
