Um..... that's a very tall order chickfilafan. The simplest and cheapest setup would be a hub motor with SLA batteries, - only I don't think that you'll be able to get anything like 30 miles on a charge with such a system. It seems to me at least, that the more lightweight and hi-tech the system the more you have to pay for it. There's been a fair bit of debate here in this forum about alternative battery systems that are much lighter than SLAs, but lightness and more range makes for greater financial angst which is why I've stuck with SLAs myself.
OMNIPOTENS aeterne Deus, qui nos secundum imaginem Tuam plasmasti, et omnia bona, vera, pulchra, praesertim in divina persona Unigeniti Filii Tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussisti, praesta quaesumus ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori, Episcopi et Doctoris, in peregrinationibus per interrete factis et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus et omnes quos convenimus cum caritate ac patientia accipiamus. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
