Perspective Shred Owner Questions

All-I am considering a Surface604 Shred, and I have a few questions. But first some background. It will be used mainly for Commuting @ 8 miles each way. It is a hilly (by Colorado standards) commute, with 3 miles being on a Dirt Pack fire road. I currently have a Specialized Turbo X, but find it a bit under powered as with me, clothes, shoes, lunch, etc it is pushing 250lbs (I will let you guess how much of that is my fat ____ :) Is that weight within the acceptable range for the bike? Has anyone gone tubeless on the rear Tire? Having a flat @ 6:00am with a rear hub motor is not fun.....
