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.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
