Lotsa good questions.
I like hub motors as they are light and cheap - but a mid drive is probably more suitable for you if you have a lot of hills. Those Bafang motors are some of the best. I...

OP question is Why...? My thought is When? I don't ebike all the time. I ebike on my 30 mi RT commute. I ebike if there are large hills. Other than that, I like to just bike.
