Hi Shimano are still making LX and XT 36 hole hubs. I have the 2012 catalog and we have 2013 at work. LX and XT are part of their "trekking" line(as well as XT still being in their MTB line) are disc and non disc. I know newis expensive but looked after they do go the distance of 10 years plus. The "new" V brakes are quite nice too.

Had no idea 36H had become so obscure!
It was the recommended norm for the rear wheel when I built up my old Cannondale commuter bike in 1999, hence it has a 36H Hope hube laced to a Mavic X618. It hasn't needed truing in about 7 years of daily use.
