HI, i am new to this forum. Does anyone know if i would be able to change my maximum speed from UK regulations which are 15.5 to the laws in the US where i could have an ebike that goes up to 28MPH. I own a trek allant+8 and im considering bringing my bike from london to new york and i am curious if it is possible to get my bike adjusted before i go or would this not be possible?

Bosch bikes are factory locked and are not able to have the region changed after leaving the factory.

Your option would be to use one of the various aftermarket chips to unlock it with the associated risk of error codes/warranty repercussions.

You would also want to research how to get a bike with a battery that size across the ocean. Can't fly it, and not all freight forwarders will accept lithium batteries. Or buy a powertube on this side of the water....

I think the bike will stay at home then. I can't be buying a battery just for my visit so ill leave it here in London. Thanks for pointing this out about flying with a battery.
 
The Trek Allant+ 8 is equipped with a Bosch motor and a Bosch Purion or Kiox display. These systems often have settings that can be adjusted via the display or through specific software.
