Well I'm impressed that it's only a bit more cost than the Rohloff. 3-sp Sturmey-Archer hub used to be more popular than derailleur despite being more complicated. With economies of scale, advanced IGH/Pinion/belt could become much cheaper & more popular. Many casual riders buy bikes that are 2-3X+ more expensive than what they need; bikes with much easier maintenance could be made appealing.
