There is a trail like that where I was riding in Oregon the other weekend. Step down then scrub then boost...etc... etc...

I almost died and luckily my pedal dug into my shin and kept me from going over the bars. Even pre-walking a trail like that doesnt help much. If your hanging out with the homies sessioning jump to jump thats one thing but riding it as a line is impossible to hit everything safely and properly.

So wait is he claiming the bike can jump all gears while not pedalling and has what the first Honda Boxes had in them an infinite range? Like no fixed teeth? Or is he doing the one UCI made Honda go to and slap a dearilure in a can?

From what I've seen on his IG, it is definitely not an infinite range setup. It uses a cassette, but isn't quite the same as the later Honda design. He states that "Their chainring actually moved and they had a derailleur. With this the cassette shifts and the chainring always stays straight". Pretty cool either way.
