    done a bit of searching, but can't seem to find answers to these..

    Saint cranks, are they making a 83mm bb version yet? if so, is it compatible with a e-clamp derailleur, like the 68/73 is?

    on the discs, do they make a 51mm IS caliper, or are they all 74mm post mount calipers, and use adapters (like hayes/avid)?

    Thanks

    one more, how does the spider attach? is it pressed on, or is it attached using a lockring?

    There is an 83mm version (M805) available and it uses BB spacers, so a chainguide/E-type setup is fine.
    The calipers are all post-mount and use adapters for different mounts and rotor sizes.

    Edit-the spider is pressed on.
