Hi all, I had a Specialized Vado 4 that was derestricted but it was stolen. I have recently bought a cheap Mili electric bike. I think it's just a rebranded generic bike:


I would like to derestrict this bike as well, to hopefully get 20mph. I have attached images of the bike and hub which is an SWX02.

I'm wondering if anyone here knows what I need to derestrict it. I don't know if I can do it with one of those USB cables or whether I need a new display (controller).

Any advice appreciated.

Many thanks, Ben

I assume you are not UK as it is illegal

If you have access to the wheel size menu in the display, if you set the wheel size in the settings to 18 inches for a 700C wheel, and then set the units to km rather than mph then when the speedo says 16km/h you would really be doing 16 mph. This would make your ebike illegal in the UK and Europe, apart from riding it on private land with permission

Thanks for all your input. The menu worked, I would have never figured that out. Flat out on assist the bike now shows 19.5mph which is ideal.
