Looking at the ratios it appears to me to be aimed at the touring bike rider and MTB rider more than the usual IGH city and commuting bike user.In particular:
"It is recommended that the gear ratio of the front chain ring be set to approx. 1.9. Example: F34T – R18T, F39T – R20T, F45T – R23T"
This doesn't give me that much of a granny gear. Sounds like Rohloff is my next hub.
