Pretty cool, but I'd like to see how it does on some vertical climbs.

Looks like it has some sort of compound gearing (it essentially got a Marlin Crawler for bikes), says it goes from 120 gear-inches down to about 3 gear-inches.

A regular 9 speed 34-12 cassette with 175mm 22/32/44 cranks on a 26" MTB goes from 95 down to 17 gear-inches. So it's got both lower and higher gearing.

Probably tough on super steep sections and it's heavy. But downhill I bet it's a kick in the pants.

I looks like it could use a steering dampener. The front wheels flop around like a model T. I'll bet it's fun to pedal for a short distance but if it weighs anything like a downhill bicycle, it'd be a drag to pedal up any real distances.
