That's amazing. It's not everyday you see something like that. It must be insane going down any sort of hill based on how fast and stable my tandem is doing the same.

Super awesome, Alex. I've seen this bike on your website; cool to know more about it.

I'm curious about the tire choice. Did you choose Gatorskins simply because they're bombproof? They're about the worst feeling tire I've ever ridden, but with that weight I'm guessing that's way less relevant. Seems like something with 2-3 times the volume would be appropriate. But, again, I'm guessing avoiding a flat is paramount.

Do all of the first three cranks have eccentric bottom brackets?

Tire choice was primarily about being bombproof and avoiding flats. Ride quality was not a factor! Yes, the forward three bottom brackets are eccentric.
