I have a Giant Reign X1 that has a 68mm BB shell and the Session 88 frame I bought is a 83mm BB shell. Can I just get a new bottom bracket or must I buy another crankset? The cranks in question are 2009 Shimano Saints.

I'd think the fixed spindle on an external crank would need to be different between 68/73 vs 83 mm setups (and probably why there's no mention of how to setup a crank for 68/73 for 83). You might check techdocs.shimano.com and look at the Saint stuff...
