What is the planned use of the wheel?
I have two Alfine wheels, I like the Mavic a319 rim and DT 2.0/1.8/2.0 Competiton Spokes. I built my wheels 3x, if I was to do it over, I'd go 2x, with 3x the spoke's angle out of the rim is too obilque.
I run standard cogs that fit the 3 spline and choose the size that fits the front chainring and my application.
Shifter: two Shimano shifters, the Nexus 8 speed gripshift and the Alfine thumb shifter, both only fit 22.2mm upright bars. If you want to have a shifter with dropbars, best option is the JTEK barend shifter made for Alfine.
You need to purchase the kit that includes the cassette joint and anti-rotation washers.
For a brake rotor, you need to choose a Shimano centerloc in the correct size for your hubby's bike, the other option is a centerloc to 6 bolt adapter.
