Why did you choose the most complicated setup for a mid drive anyone could think of?
What is the benefit of this complicated chain routing?
If you look at my bike you will notice that even if it's a simple frame, it was not easy to get a clean chain line.
A mid drive per se is more complicated than any hub motor. You are adding complexity to more complexity.
And tbh i have no idea how to help with gearing issues if you haven't chosen a motor yet???!
