    Saint 150mm build problems...

    hi guys. i cant find a shimano contact email anywhere on the net. i need to get a hold of someone who knows about Saint components and how they fit. perhaps you guys can help. the problem is i have a 2005 Norco VPS Atomik frame (150x12mm rear) that im trying to build with Saint parts. i already have the 150 rear hub, and the dual ring crank set is on its way. but it looks like the crank will not fit with my rear hub. heres why:

    ^the link states that i need the Saint 150 crank set (83mm BB shell) to work with my 150 rear hub, but i spoke with a Norco employee who told me that my Atomik has to have the 68/73 BB shell version of the Saint crank. the 68/73 version is the one that i have on order, but will it fit with the 150 rear hub?? am i not understanding something here? please help. thank you for your time! happy new year.

    it will work fine if the frame is setup correctly for it. usually a 150mm rear end coincides with an 83mm bottom bracket shell (for chainline purposes) but a frame manufacturer can fix that. You should be fine with the 68/73mm shell
