Shimano SAINT Crankset 83mm question

1322 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  cort
Hey everyone, I have a few brand new sets of Saint cranks, model M805, 175 and 180mm. The problem is, they are for 83mm BB shells, and my bikes have 68 and 73mm shells.

Can the spindles be changed to shorter spindle on the M800 Saints? If not, I suppose I'll have to sell these, which sucks. Or can the spindles be modified (cut down)??

No, unfortunately you are screwed. You can't mod the spindle nor be able to space the B.B. from 68/73 -> 83 without really screwing up you chainline.
