Am5000, are there any tyres in particular you are using on your Volt bike which give you that increased speed? I'm just curious to know which ones in particular you are using as i may try it myself. Thanks
Wow, sounds like an interesting project. It will be interesting to hear what kind of speeds you get. Wish i were that handy!
So which tyres did you get your Volt as that's something i could consider?
So the bike doesn't max out at 15.5 with thinner tyres.
No, unfortunately, i haven't got the password. I think switching out the LCD controller may be an option by the sounds of it.
Which type of tyres was he referring to when he said you could reach speeds up to 23mph with?
Yeah, that's my problem. I live in London which is nearly always flat so i find myself easily reaching the 15.5mph max speed. As a result i find myself working extra hard to go a bit faster. Bearing in mind the weight of the bike that's quite a lot of extra hard work.
All I was trying to say...
I wish i had looked into this before i bought the bike, I've seen how easy it is to increase the speed on other makers bikes. It just bugs me that i can still comfortably cycle considerably faster with my normal mountain bike.
I don't think Volt would ever give you the password anyway as that...
I have a Volt Apline e-bike as well and wondered if anyone had figured out how to de-restrict it at all. I too want to use it for 'off-road use on private land' and wanted to squeeze out a bit more speed. It currently maxes out at the usual 28 kph.
I see from some bikes it can be...
