 Does the chain ever bounce off the high side? In sure a guide wouldnt allow it but that would be a bummer

 It never goes over the big cog. I have an issue with Saint derailleurs dropping the chain off the smallest cog. The limit screw slowly drills its way into the stop, and when it goes too far it drops the chain over the small cog. It does this on my trail bike as well. It's a bit of a problem with Saint and Zee apparently and it is really annoying. To address this I have taken the 11t cog off as well, and moved the remaining 6 cogs more in the centre of the freehub, so there's spacers on either side. That way if it drops off, there's room and it won't jam. You can get 12T cogs that are not made as a lockring and I may get one of those to give me 12 small cog as well as the 13, but still have a spacer on the dropout side of the cassette.

 What cassette did you use for this as there isn't specifically a saint cassette?

 does this setup work better than spacers on the other side off cassette ?

 It allows for an 11t small cog as it has to go on the outside unless you want to modify it, as it has a shelf to stop it from sliding onto the cassette. But I'm considering either pulling the 11t completely and running 6sp to centre them over the whole hub, or machining the 11t to allow it to slide over the freehub body. But I'm not 100% that there's enough material to allow that. Probably will just pull the 11t out and centre the 6 cogs that are left.
