Hi, I am looking to buy an e bike and I have some requirements that I think most people will find odd. These are specific to me and since I am new to this world of e-bikes I would like some advice please. Goals: I want to use an e bike for daily commutes -all year round without sweating. (I want to use e-bike for easy commute) Choices: Mid-drive motors, Front hub motors, Rear hub motors. Specifics of my commute: The areas I travel in have some smooth, some bumpy, some hilly roads and very few off-roads. I carry 3 bags with me: office briefcase + gym bag+ grocery bag for when need be (and a small cycle tool bag). Weight = 150 (me) + additional = 220 at most. Max= 300 if carrying exceptional loads, like luggage. I want to ride through all seasons. I am currently using a bike. When I ride I wear office attire/suit or, casual clothing so, mostly shirts and trousers and jackets. As a result I want to avoid sweating as much as possible. My commutes happen in urban areas so, there are lots of stops every now and then. Total distance traveled I assume is usually under 22 miles in a day and rarely crosses 30, but can happen once in a few months. Problems faced: I find myself sweating in rainy and winter (snow prone region, not yet) conditions when I have to wear insulated clothes + windproof coats/jackets, particularly on hills. (I do not have means to carry three different bags properly. I have to explore options, rear panniers+rear baskets, etc.) Goals to be met: I want to meet my needs of commute, carry bags properly and avoid sweating (Can I use ebike for commute and not exercise). So, what type of motor would be suitable for the experience I am seeking? Choices: Mid-drive motors, Front hub motors, Rear hub motors. Suggestions for bikes and carrying arrangements are welcome. Note: Carrying office clothes in a separate bag is not ideal and only changes the problem without solving it. Thank you in advance for all your help. Edit 1: Male, late 20s. 150lbs, 5 ft, 8.5. Located in US, east coast. Health: average. Injury: None Pre-existing condition: very mild back pain. so, upright position is how I currently ride. Edit 2: At this point I am thinking a combination of some type of pedal assistance (lots of traffic stops) and throttle would be useful for hills and keeping up with traffic when needed. Does that limit my choices?
