    all wheeled out of ideas

    I just recently purchased a set of mavic demax wheels with saint hubs 20mm f, 12mm r along with a saint short cage derailler. There is only one problem, the through axle of the rear hub isn't long enough for the derailler to screw into. Does shimano make a longer through axle or does kona make a thinner lower mount for the stab primo. Your help is appreciated. Thanks.

    You're wrong, the SAINT deraileur screws into the axel. Ya best bet would be to give Shimano a call I reckon.

    I was going to say the same thing so I am glad it was you that sounded like a idiot
