    kinetix pantour suspension hub

    Can anyone tell me where i might find specs on the kinetix pantour suspension hub which is on my 2007 Dahon Speed Pro 24. i am not sure what maintenance i can do on my own. it seems like there is a little side-to-side play which is caused by the elastomer in the hub. is there anyway of tightening the hub? Dahon has been pretty useless in giving info on the hub and i can't seem to find any kind of instructions on the internet.

    ...I've never heard of a hub like this before. Is the elastomer like...between the axle and the hub shell? Just trying to understand how it would work...

    kinetix suspension hub

    Yes - there is an elastomer involved, not sure of the actual placement but it does need to get replaced every year or so depending on how much riding you do (this is according to Dahon). The tires are high pressure (125psi) stelvios so the suspension hub smoothes out the ride somewhat. Many people say to replace the wheel with another "regular" wheel when you are due for an annual tune-up.
