    2011 Giant XTC 26" frame

    I recently purchased a XTC hardtail frame from China specd with 44mm internal cup headset,68mm english threaded external bearing BB and a really strange 142mm wide rear dropout that has old style vertical dropouts NOT thru axle.I am having fits trying to find a rear wheel to fit other than the stock wheelset. I assume that the QR is 10mm and wider than a 135mm skewer?I measured the dropout from the inside dropout surfaces.This problem is really frustrating as I have spent countless hours online trying to find a wheelset or at least a hub that will fit.I sure am glad I found this Giant Forum

    i have a xtc 26" 2013 hard tail, it was 44/56 internal headset, press fit bottom bracket, and QR real dropout. I have seen many xtc frames, but haven't notice any of them are with 142mm rear...
    Have you tried to use a standard 9mm QR rear wheel ?

    2011 Giant XTC 26" frame

    please post a pic. from my understanding giant has not use a 142mm spacing until this year on the 27.5 and even those come with convertible dropouts.

    its all good,but still want to see a picture. I also think that Giant has never put a sliding dropout on their bikes. Why? because I have never seen a single speed Giant XTC.

    I'm thinking your frame could be a re branded counterfeit. Until we get pictures...
