Micargi Mustang GTS - From Fixie to something that can live up to the name

I scored an almost brand new Micargi Mustang GTS through Facebook last week for next to nothing, and I'm looking to upgrade it from fixie to a properly geared cruiser.

I live in St Kilda, so the fixie's good for a summer cruise along the beach, but I also want something that I can take up the hill to get out and along the river.

Anybody have any advice on a good upgrade to the crankset and corresponding cassettes that might pair well with it? I know that they sell it with a Shimano Nexus 3-speed, but I'm keen for a discussion before I order online and turn my loungeroom into a bike shop (won't my partner be happy!).

I've been out of the bike building and repair game for 18 years. lol

She's an absolute beauty!
