Belt + 3-speed IGH + Seattle Hills = TSDZ2, BBS02, BBSHD, or mistake?

I've been reading these forums for a few weeks now as I'm contemplating adding a mid-drive to my bike (for only recreational riding in the city on roads and some paths). I currently own a 2010 Norco Ceres https://www.norco.com/bike-archives/2010/ceres/ . It's a belt drive with an Alfine 8 IGH. I rea...
