I am going to purchase my first Ebike (Canada). I will use it to ride the bike paths (paved) around the city and also the groomed portion (usually hard packed gravel on old railroad beds or easy trails) of the Trans Canada Trail. I Would like flexibility to go longer distances - 80 plus km at times. I would like a bike that is not too hard to pedal unassisted a good portion of the time and one that I can lift on and off a bike rack without too much trouble. I would prefer having both throttle and pedal assist. I think I like the idea of a battery placement in the mid for balance but not sure as I am not knowledgable about the mechanics of Ebike's. I prefer price under $3500 but will be flexible to get the right bike. I need something relatively reliable as I don't know how to repair myself. Not sure if all this is achievable but any recommendations appreciated. Thanks!
