And isn't 15.5mph adequate anyway? We can always go faster downhill! The only thing I would advocate changing would maybe be the motor power with the rise of cargo bikes, but the speed restriction? Nah.Not even that Ross. The 25kph / 15.5 mph assist limit is an international standard allowing widespread travel carrying pedelecs or riding across borders.
No government will wreck that widely enjoyed benefit just for 3 mph, it would be too stupid for words, ESPECIALLY as I keep repeating, there's the S class pedelecs already allowing 45 kph / 28 mph.
While that already exists the DfT won't even look at this pedelec speed increase issue.
