Hi. Am new to this group, but I notice from my initial browse that commuting to/from work on e-bikes are a common thread...great. I have a Giant Suede-e, three LAfree Sports and the venerable LAfree Lite. I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to get around the speed limiter on the Suede-E. I also have a copy of the service manual for the LAfree Sport. It's translated from the Japanese so the grammar is sometimes a little 'odd'. The hybrid specialist at Giant sent them to me which says a lot for Lance. I'm grateful to him. I'm looking forward to hearing from anyone if they can help.

Mine tops out at maybe 10-11mph, it is much slower than my 15mph x-treme 24v bike. I even put new 36v lithiums in it, still slow. How slow is yours? If you figure out a way, please let me know. Thanks!!

The maximum assisted speed is 17 mph as stated by the manufacturer. Of course this is best case scenerio and probably only when the bike is brand new off the production line!

17mph on that bike is really hard to do even with assist, at least for any sort of distance. The peddle assist isn't a boost like ebikes today, it just makes peddling a little easier. With only 7 speeds, it is basically useless at higher speeds. On my x-treme, I can do 17 and not even break a sweat. Because of the limitation on the Suede-E, even with throttle, I ended up ordering a new controller, which should be in tomorrow. thanks!!
