Airnimal Rhino: what Drivetrain would you recommend, and why?


I have an Airnimal Rhino frame, for which I'm having trouble choosing a drivetrain for.

I'm essentially a beginner at this stuff, so keep that in mind..

I plan to do some mild-to-moderate off road cycling, exploring whatever isn't tarmac around my local area (for which I've no past experience doing to reference..)

Airnimal themselves sell three variants of this bike:

One with an Alfine 8
One with a Rohloff
One with a derailleur set up (can't recall specific specs)

I'm not looking to spend big money, so that discounts the Rohloff.

I AM leaning toward a hub system of some sort, for a simpler set up and to not have parts hangiing down from the small wheels, but still open to options.

I discovered another hub called the Nuvinci (specifically the n380 model) but I don't know if that would be daft on such a bike.. I understand it is quite a bit heavier than, say, an Alfine..

So to you more experienced folks, what would you recommend, and why?

(Just don't tell me to use a different bike.. ha ha)
