    Pantour Suspension Hubs are really nice.

    Pat Franz at TerraCycle has sure helped me out. First he spent over a hour working with me to make my limbo quiet. The chain caused so many rumbles and power loss going over the two idlers that it was not very enjoyable. We worked out the setup and man the difference is pretty big. Smooth peddling in all chainrings and it is nice and quiet.
    Well he let me borrow a 2) rim and pantour hub to see if I like it. I can say I sure do. I may have had at most 35 PSI in the front tire. Otherwise the bumps and such were jolting. Well with this puppy I can pump the tire up to 100 PSI and it rides better then at 35 without the suspension. It gets what regular suspension does not help the small stuff and rough pavement rumble.
    If I find myself riding my df racing bike a lot a set of these hubs would be fantastic on it.
    Now to see if my wheel builder can find this hub or if I have to order it and have him make the wheel.

    Pantour will make a complete wheel for you with their hub and Gaerlan will also build Pantour hubbed wheels.

    I was reading about the hubs that you mentioned in your posting. Went to a couple web sites looking for a cost analysis but have had little success. Any suggestions where I might get some more information?
