      I've done loaded touring, mtn biking and other madness on my Surly Pugsley with an Alfine [8 spd] setup with an illegal F32T R21T ratio. Gearing is nice and low....I've had zero problems with it. My buddy has the same setup on an identical bike and also has no issues.

      I'll be gearing my Alfine 11 [when I get one] with a lower illegal ratio as well.

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.
