Question Nexus 8 IGH + Roller Brake

I've got a little project in mind and want to use a Nexus 8 with a roller brake. Are there any frame/dropout issues I need to take into account? I'm thinking of putting this on a Surly 1x1 frame.

If I order the following bits am I good?

- Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub [premium red band version] - SG-8R25
- Shimano Hub Roller Brake - BR-IM70-R
- Shimano Nexus Shifter - SL-8S20

Does the roller brake need a v-brake compatible lever or will it work with a standard road bike brake lever?

Thanks...
