I installed the coaster brake model on a mixte and am happy with it; even with 700c wheels it's still a pretty usable range of gears (it's very flat where I am.)

One note: the Nexus-4 shifters are a little harder to find these days and don't typically come with the hub. I have a trigger shifter and it works well on upright bars; the twist shifters are more common (there's one on eBay now for $30 but I read somewhere that they might be less durable.
