    Just got a Cake Kalk OR race

    Just wanted to add my initial thoughts and can answer any questions people might have. Because they are retarded expensive and apparently have been having supply constraint issues, there is no community of owners for discussing mods and troubleshooting like there is for Surron.

    1. This is a real motorcycle size-wise. I thought it would be smaller. The handlebars are idiotically low compared to the seat height, but I have higher bars coming soon. The is no adjustability for the foot pegs and the control system integrated into the top part of the clamp, so I dont think you can use clamp risers. I am a 5'5" woman and with 3-4" higher bars I expect the geometry will work for me. Reminds me size-wise of CRF 150.

    2 . Made me so grateful and happy to have my surron. The surron's customizability and small size are perfect for MTB type riding. And Luna's Knowledge base is 100x more helpful than the info provided by cake for their bike. The cake is light, but you have to remove 4 bolts to remove the battery. you even need to remove bolts to adjust the back suspension.

    3. Cake charges $200 for its "custom" kickstand. They charge $180 for spare FENDERS! seriously, if you want to laugh go look at their parts store on the website. This bike truly is for rich dumbasses who know nothing about bikes and have money to burn.

    4. The bike does not come with even the most basic manual documents. no harness drawing, no torque specs for fasteners, no exploded drawings of parts. The manual is useless. This is very annoying because they certainly have these documents internally and could have someone put it all together in less than a day.

    5. The bike is fun as hell. I am already working on some DIY solutions to the lack of plug and play options with the harness

    To anyone else who owns a cake bike and wants to chat/compare notes, please DM me.

    Good luck with your SRX-LB.
    I`m a 70 year old dirt-bike fanatic 5'-9" 170 lbs. and so happy to have my SRX-LB also.
    Bought it new in December 2019 and so far so good. Aside from a few minor bumps,
    I`ve posted about other Electric Dirt bikes is this section but with the world-wide supply issues and the lack of a good community like the Surron, I have been hesitant to buy another bike right now.
    Confused about putting more money into my SRX-LB or going for another E-Dirt-Bike.
