Hmmm. 30 km per hour is about 18 miles per hour. There are many motors out there that will give you that. The real issue for you is cost.
One idea to check the sites listed on this link. http://www.electric-bikes.com/ Click on the link for conversion kits. They have a whole list of kits with descriptions and links to dealers.
Someone posted here recently about Amped Bikes, also. Their motors are similar to the ones on the site above, but I hear they cost less. I've looked at the site, and the product looks pretty good, but I have no direct experience with it.
Happy researching, and keep us informed of what you find.
Im thinking about the Golden motors Ebike kit and 36v 10ah LiFePo4 battery.
A little bit up my money.CommentS?

The battery seems a little heavy to me (8000 g). My Bionx battery is 3000-4000 g, I think.
Also, these are made in China. That might not be bad, but it might. Since I don't know much about Golden Motors, I can't say for sure.
How much does the kit with battery cost?
Price about 900 dollars.
LiFePo4 weight 5,5 kg.
Can you advise some kits more to me?
I just dont know, what to buy.

http://ampedbikes.com (http://ampedbikes.com/) for the kit and http://pingbattery.com (http://pingbattery.com/) for the battery. A kit from Goldenmotor is known to arrive damaged, but it might arrive in perfect condition. Goldenmotor rims and spokes are always poor quality though.
You should consider no less than a 20ah battery, if you want it to last as long as they advertize. If you get a 10ah it may not last for 1000+ cycles because they are designed to give 1000+ charges/discharges at 10 amps. Your ebike at 36 volts will draw around 20 amps at full speed, so buy a 20ah battery. They are designed to last for 1000+ cycles at 20 amps. I hope this helps.
Oh, i need shipping to estonia. :(
It's so hard to find good kit :(
Now i have 350 dollars to conversion kit?Whic one to chose?Needed shipping to estonia
It isn't important that there is batterys.

Perhaps you should email the vendors so they can give you shipping quotes.
