  1. Great video, keeping it simple. I’d use electrical tape. No damage to the frame or paint.

    Hello, can you remove speed limit xiaomi himo c20? Thank you!

  5. How do you hack the jetson bolt pro that doesn’t use app?

  6. All that for a extra 2 Ks you rebel the Hack is no good

  7. It works,brilliant.

  8. just tried that but in no time it goes into error (102 code on bosh readout): though it reads a lower speed alright… what could I be doing wrong ?

  9. Since -by law- an ordinary electric bike is not allowed to run faster then 25 kph, ( that’s in Belgium) some hacks of the trip computer won’t work! On the other hand, if the police suspects you fiddled with the computer, makes you stop, en verify the max speed, you can get fined up to 250€! So be careful

  11. He seems to be piddling a lot.

    You just weakened your frame !

  13. Carefull, this does not work on some Bosche systems they give an error code and then lockout.

  14. I just have 1 question, does this work on the old Boach performance line cx. 1st gen?

  15. how do you use the magnet on the bike?

  16. My ebike can go 35kph but there’s gotta be a way with out it damaging the frame to make it go faster with out drilling any holes any tips?

  17. Please don’t drill holes in your frame people. Use any other method necessary! Epoxy resin for example. It’s so dangerous to do that to your frame!

  18. my seller can remove limiter on software base for 30eur

  19. 1:15 smallest wheel possible? what are you talking about?

  20. klabe productions December 9, 2020 @ 9:37 pm

    Does this work on prophet ebikes

  21. Wow. Drilled thorough the frame!!!

  22. Oh, man, what did you do? I have never seen anything like it in my life. He weakened the frame of the bike in a critical part! You would have solved it without damage with a cable tie.Funny!

    Affects the 2 year warranty aswell I bought a £150 bosch speed removal but cant put it on for another year

  24. Omg… It worked very well can’t still I can’t believe. Thanks a lot

  25. Bafang ebike kit no limiter

  26. Wel this worked better than i expected

  27. No. Bigger wheel smaller speed. Smaller wheel bigger speed

  28. how much faster did you go i want to try this.

  29. On latest Shimano steps software it will give you error E014 after about 10Km since crank spin and wheel spins are the same. Before you could move the sensor back and spin the crank for about 100 times. No this does not work any more. Motor has to be replaced. So this is a warning for to user with newer Shimano steps system. This may work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ecj4Mzsxsg

  30. Just tape the magnet to the sensor!!!

  31. Its know good when ya not peddling down hills lol it will switch off and e8000 throws a code w011

  32. Anyone considering to do what this smartass did, consider this too: any proper e-bike can be resold even after 3-4 years at a decent price. If you’ll cheat with the speedo, the odometer reading will be incorrect. You won’t know when to carry out the necessary servicing and no one, who knows anything about bikes, will buy yours at a decent price. So what you save on the customs (by buying a cheaper e-bike and then hometuning it to go faster) you’ll end up paying at the gates, as the resell value of your bike will be much lower than it would otherwise be with proper odo reading. Besides, if you have an accident, no insurance company will ever cover your crap if they find out that your bike has been modified, so you’ll be on your own.

  33. what if u peddle backwards

  34. will this work on a bosch system?

  35. You are not Drilling the frame 😱

  36. Remco Den Hartog December 9, 2020 @ 9:48 pm

    When you let the sensor to the inside of the fork and move it a litle towards the crank and move the spoke-magnet towards the rim should have some small effect on the speed also, I guess. Or using a bigger wheel, not a smaller. And the biggest tyre that fits your bike. A 27,5 inch to a 29 inch wheel with the same type of tyre should give a advantage of 4,6 km/h based on a 45mm tyre. When you simulate a bigger wheel by moving the sensor more towards the rim should give aprox a same advantage.

    That was a zippy tie job.

  38. Will this work on Bosch 4th gen motor 2021 cube reaction 500?

  43. Imagine Video Stock footage December 9, 2020 @ 9:57 pm

    So what’s your top speed after the hack? And what are your thoughts/experiences a year+ later?

  44. Will this work on a lectric XP bike?

  45. Elizabeth Figueroa December 9, 2020 @ 10:00 pm

    Do you always need to pedal for this to work or can you be on full motor mode and it’ll still work?
