If you are a lucky owner of the Mijia QiCycle EF1, Xiaomi's pedal assisted bicycle, you will have surely noticed that with the stock firmware the electrical assistance stops intervening at 20km / h (limit imposed in China). With the app International QiCycle, depending on the model, it is possible to bring this limit to 25km / h via a software update.

Unfortunately, not all models (including mine) have received this update, but it is now possible to force the installation or even use a custom firmware to bring the speed limit to 29km / h through the application created by Christopher
