Converting a single speed bike to an internal hub 3/5 speed?

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Anything to look out for? Any suggestions on models? eyelets for fenders/rack are a must, and a relaxed geometry is also preferable.
