It was for a conversion to an alfine or rohloff, such is my next project.

(wouldn't dream of fixie-ising it!)

Appreciate this probably won't go down too well tho!

Joking aside, it's probably not the best basis for such a project. Hub gears are a little draggier than derailleur gears (I had a drop-barred bike that I built up with an AW3 hub), and as such lend themselves to more 'relaxed' cycling... in which case, a bike with clearance for wider tyres, mudguards and some luggage carrying capacity would be much more suitable.
