    Pantour Hubs: anyone?

    Just curious if this would be a good fit for a city bike.

    I am in the process of replacing a front suspension bike, but having SOME kind of confort for the long distance rides while keeping the bike light doesn't sound that bad.

    Could you imagine what would happen if the internals fail in that hub while you are riding along?

    If i used those my tire would hit my downtube every time i hit a bump.
    Id say most anyone else with a tight track frame would have the same issue.
