I presume that a front-mounted engine would blow less fumes directly to the rear than a rear-mounted or frame-mounted motorized bike. I really don't know.

For me, I have a spare front-mounted electric hub from an earlier project. I'd use that to pull a kiddie trailer.
Ahhh cool.. I think you mean a wrap around counter weight. I guess balance is a good thing. Ooops.

I was using electric stuff last year and untill the magic super cunductor capacitors land in marlboro cigarette carton sizes I am going to opt out of that situation.. I was popping chains and overloading and burning out motors last summer..
