@jsdavis,
Go with the same size seat tube you would on a standard diamond frame. Worst case scenario if you go short is a bit more seat post sticking out. An upright bike is a bit more forgiving in the fit department than a drop bar bike.

It isn't too difficult to swap a cog on a Nexus hub, and resetting the cable isn't too hard either, if you can follow directions. IIRC there are several Youtube tutorials on how to do it.

I love my IGH bikes, currently I have 3 that I ride regularly and two more being built up.
