    Shimano Saint RD-M800 Rear DRLR 135mm Question.

    Hey Guy's. I want to pull the trigger on Two of these Der.'s. Or One Hone
    and One Saint Der. I just bought almost the Whole Saint Package which
    Included the Rear Der. I just want a couple of BackUp's as the price
    is so cheap. I bought the set for my next build. My Rear Hub is a 150mm.
    Shifter's will be XTR 8 Speed.

    Question: The Saint Der on Sale is listed as a 135mm.Can I use this Der.
    as Long as I have my 150mm Axel?

    Queston #2: Why does the Hone Der. Not state the spacing like the Saint
    does?

    Question#3:The "Saint M801 Rear Derailleur f/135mm Frame" is listed as "not
    rapidrise". So the M800 is Rapid Rise? What does the "f" sand for in f/135?

    All this info come's from Jenson's Site.

    I assume my problem would be the same with either,regarding the Axel. I have been told that
    the Hone work's fine,however I have never ran this setup before. I am just trying
    to get my Fact's straight,sorry I'm a little confused.
