The reason for that is probably that panto parts are not ridden the same way as regular ones. I have some very nice drillium panto Chainrings, for example, that are attached to a wall queen and get fresh air two or three times a year. I were stupid, or hurt, to heft my 220 lbs. into a cr like that. The same goes for brake and shifting levers, seatposts, stems or whatever.

I am curious if the pros rode panto?
