      I know the OP is from April, but if you're still looking I will add my voice in favor of the Bafang mid-drive 750W and recommend against using a hub motor in San Francisco. Your hub will "lock" up on the first steep hill and reach an efficiency of exactly 0% and burn up your battery without moving you at all. No bueno. I have a BionX, eezee, and the bafang among a few others and there is no contest.

      The mid-drive however will happily take you up a hill and - with sufficient skill on the rider's part - up the stairs to your apartment. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFNRIqexC0g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFNRIqexC0g No hub motor that I've seen will do that.


      The best place to get the kits is aliexpress. They have the 750W for $435 and the 350W for $376 at the time of writing.


      350W: http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=bafang&initiative_id=QRW_20140729100942&productId=1846977566 http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=bafang&initiative_id=QRW_20140729100942&productId=1846977566
