I've been reading that the Saint rear mechs can only run double chain sets...
Is this true and how come? I'm thinking about swapping the rear mech for a Saint as they're much stronger springs, running a 11-32 cassette with 42,32,22 chainrings... Will it really not work?

Cheers all!

Saint comes in a long and short cage option

I see no reason why you cannot run a saint long cage on a triple set up

The shorter cage version would struggle in some combo's having a lower capacity then the longer version
