    Saint rear Derailleur with any other hubs/axles

    Anybody out there know if the new Shimano Saint Rear Derailleur can be used with with any other hubs or axles? I'd like to be able to switch my road/commuter bike from single speed to geared as easily as possible and a bolt on hub with attached rear derailleur, full cable housings and ODI grips (using a flat bar) would allow me to make the switch by loosening a total of 5 bolts and save me from having reinstall cables every time. Any thoughts?

    Makes sense.

    You can run a Saint rear mech with any 10mm thru-axle hub. Hadley makes one as does Hugi.

    I ran the Saint/Hadley set-up but ultimately ditched it due to my dislike for rapid-rise.
