You might consider having both hubs in the disc-enabled form, even though you're using rim brakes. That way, should you ever want to change to disc (the frame is disc-enabled, but you'd need a different fork), it would be an easy upgrade. I spec'ed mine that way, and did eventually switch to a suss fork and disc brakes. If you do go that way, switch the front hub to 36 hole, since it will be dished (the Rohloff will still be undished).

And think about changing the light to the Luxos, which has a USB port.

The Nomad is a marvelous bike.
