Q. Should I buy a bike with a mid-drive motor or hub-motor?
A. Hub motors tend to be a little easier to operate if you are a less experienced cyclist, because they require less shifting.

In theory you get better hill climbing with a mid-drive, you'll usually find both types will climb just about any hill.
