What's not to want about 3x3x8 speed gearing? :-D
You could run a straight-block cassette for super-close gear ratios,
and still have a full touring gear range.
I'm sure we can find a way to mount two "front" shifters to make this possible.
How about barcons to operate front and rear derailers, and a left hand
brifter to operate the Sturmy hub?
Of course, you'd want to look at the fine print of how low a gear they
rate (and will warranty) this hub for. Lots of torque going into a
planetary gear hub can lead to unpleasant crunching noises. Been there
done that (with the first-generation Sturmey XRD-8 hub... twice...).
