Interested in subject ebike. I live in a city that is fairly hilly. How do these bikes handle on the hills? I have observe they have no throttle, is this a hinderance while manouvering hills?

So the big advantage of having an internal geared hub is when you come to a stop facing up hill, say at a light or an intersection, you can shift down gear when stationary.

Aren't the mid hub motors supposed to be better for climbing hills? I've heard that in a few video reviews.

Hills is a relative term. Ho steep? How long? Mid drives are great climbers, but geared hub motors can chug right along.
