Can a Shimano Saint crankset fit on a p2?

Hi I was wondering if a Shimano Saint crankset and a Model FC-M800 Bottom Bracket could fit on a 04 Specialized P2??

I'm sure it would. That's one way to double the value of your bike.

Nope, because I don't have your bike here where I can look at it and measure it. My son owns both a P-2 (year unknown) and a Saint crankset (on his freeride bike). Both are just enough out of the ordinary to make me hesitate a bit but he's constantly changing parts from one bike to the other. What, exactly, are you trying to accomplish?

yeah man you should make sure that the bb and the crank are compatable. i dont know what styles they are available in (i.e. square taper/octalink....) but you could always swap the bb for something else if they dont work. but why would you get the saint? of i were you, i would go for a race face diabolous.

You are planning to spend $300 on a Saint crank? I don't think they cost nearly that much brand new and the whole Saint group was considered a market failure and disappeared in a couple of years.
