Yeah, it's just the first gen "Classic" drives that had the 1:1 until the current batch came along.
With the cargo bike on these hills, a lot of the riding is full-assist climbing or full-brake descending. It's a lot to put a chain through.

For the pant thing, maybe some separate knee guards would work well? I dunno, fit can be really tricky and a lot of mountain bike clothing has tough stitching on heavy-duty nylon so there can be a lot of sawing. Could also try wearing some thin roadie knee warmers underneath the reinforced stuff to give some relief from the cheese-grater effect.
