My own 22-mile, mostly flat, mostly MUP commute sounds a whole lot like yours. Given that it's mostly flat, I really only use 2, maybe 3 gears on any given day.

IMO, your money is much better spent on a custom fitted frame. The Rohloff's advantages will only be evident for a few seconds here and there when you're shifting, but a well-fitted frame is a joy every single minute of the ride.
