    Shimano doesn't approve of using center lock adapters and it will probably void your warrentee. I see your predicament.

    Ask your LBS, they can order all manner of odd adapters.

    i think those won't work with saint... the saint centerlocks are bigger than the others, probably to the point where it is not physically possible to build a saint-ctr-lock->iso adapter. best bet is to use your existing saint rotor and switch adapters.

    though the incompatibility is unfortunate it allows the oversized axles used in the saint hubs to come all the way out to the frame, making for a stronger hub. the oversized centerlock splines should also help reduce some of the disc slop for trials riding.

    None of those will work as Nmr8 pointed out. The saint centerlocks are bigger than the others and there is no adapter for them.
