I have a 2008 Marin Mount Vision Pro 15.5" and am wondering what ebike kit I should get for it. Do take notice of the fork and bike materials in the link...

I first thought that I wanted a front hub motor kit, but then I heard that the materials the bike are made of could cause the fork to break, even with steel torque arms installed, just not a good idea, as I was thinking that I wanted at least 1,000 Watt @ 48v... That would get me to 30+ mph, right? You think even 35 mph?
Now, I'm thinking that I should just go with a rear hub kit, but would the bike materials not be an issue then too? I guess just not as dangerous if/when it brakes, yikes, I don't want that to happen, should I just get a steel fork for the front hub kit? Do they make steel forks with suspension, like the one found on my bike?
Ideally, I'd want some sort of governor switch, to keep the bike within a programmable speed. Also, torque sensitive pedal assist is good, right? Can you suggest a kit and what to do with the bike?
