    saint 135 or 150?

    What's is the difference between the 135 and 150 crank? It looks like its the shell size but is that all? I am using them on my Demo8 and I think it uses the 73mm shell but no clue on chain line?

    135 is for a 135mm rear end and 150 is for a 150mm rear end. You need the 135 because the 68/73mm BB shell goes with a 135mm rear end.

    Also the axles are different. 135 uses a 10mm and 150 use a 12mm.

    njhcx4xlife is sorta right although you can use a 150mm rear with 68-73mm shells,intense is one company i can think of.

    the 135mm and 150mm is rear hub spacing or dropout width,not cranks.

    68-73mm or 83mm or even 100mm bb widths is what else you would need to look at.

    Good call. I forgot about some odd frames running a 150 rear end with a 73mm BB. Doesn this result in a wierd chain line though?

    My Free has a 73mm shell with 150mm rear spacing. The chainline doesn't get whacked cuz you run a 128mm bb spindle, which pushes the rings out to the appropriate spot. The only thing that's weird is you have a bunch of bb shaft exposed on the non-drive side. Looks kinda weird.

    Longer spindle makes sense but that must look strange. Whatever works though.

    There are kits to fit the 83mm crank on a 73mm shell for proper chainline with a 150 rear end.

    Am I missing something? Cranks arent made specific for rear end width, just BB shell width.

    For the most part 68/73 works best with 135 rear and 83 with 150 but different frames have different specifics, and things can be done to make different combos work.

    As for the different, 83mm cranks just have a longer spindle.

    Are you referring to cranks or hubs w/ the different size axle?
