The Cake Kalk? Between the name and the design I think something got lost in translation.

I think the same thing was said of Alta when it was first introduced. Who knows if CAKE will take off or not.

I think it looks like a ton of fun! I'd love to tear around on one. I wonder if they're mountain bike legal, like, can I ride that on the local bike paths? That can't be, it's too fast I would think...?

Nothing looks all that good about that thing. At least the suspension settings are stiff. Ohhhhhhh!
