shimano saint derailuer

i recently bought a shimano saint derailuer from CRC and i didnt buy the shimano saint hubs, i was wondering if it a shimano saint derailuer is compatible with a non-shimano saint hub? or should i just return the derailuer and get a diff one?

thanks.

Are you using index shifting or friction? Roger

I don't see why not. www.cambriabike.com see what they have written in their words, not Shimano's. All points to a decidedly versatile applications. Call 'em, under the guise of buying it (or not)

Just got off the phone with them as I've accumulated some questions of late.
The M600 & M800 older types, on sale are Saint Hubs specific; reduced in price.
The M810 newer, still quite dear as you'd say, fits most anything.
The chap fired-it right-off. I suppose that due to the huge discount, folks've been inquiring. "it can track different types of cog sets" says the ad. and the man.
By all means, have others weigh in, take it all under advisement, as I'd said I'd had another thing to ask him anyway & got lucky with a knowlegeable fellow.
