I upgraded to a red band nexus 8 from derailure gears with a close ratio cassette. It was a bit difficult getting used to some of the big jumps of the nexus, but I've adjusted. I live in a flat area, so finding one chain ring up front that gives me a comfortable cruse in 6th gear, or whatever gear you are happy with. I have plenty of speed range for the riding that I do.

I wrote all that to say that I don't need two chain rings, I just deal with the hub like it is. I do wish I had closer spacing though.
