    I couldn't get through on the phone today but I checked online. The thru axels are available but the dropout kits are listed as pre-order. I still want to talk to a human first though to confirm.

    I called and asked the other day, when I got through for another reason. I was told the drop-out kits should be available by the end of this month. As I said before the thru-axles themselves have been in stock for a while.

    Sorry, that's for US.

    As far as I understand any other 12x142 axle like the DT-Swiss
    DT Swiss RWS X-12 Alloy | Chain Reaction Cycles

    But you need to buy the 142x12 conversion kit (first item listed) first.

    You have to use the Giant axle. It is made by DT Swiss but it's a different thread pitch and won't work.

    I have had 3 drive side drop outs on order for months. I was told end of this month.

    If you don't want to wait you could get them here.

    There is also this one, but I'm not sure if it comes with the nut.

    [QUOTE=Phantomtracer;10880542]I haven't heard yet, has anyone been able to order

    Hi, Im a bit confuse about the conversion kit you guys were talking about. Has anyone already converted there 135mm (qr) axle to 142mm? Can anyone give me a link on what convertio kit you guys bought? I have a Giant trance 2 2016 and I cant believe that this bikes are still on a qr axle. Can anyone help me on this? I bought a wheel set that fits a 142mm axle and I need to convert mine to it.

    ha, look at the pdf link that was posted right above your post. It has part numbers and pictures.

    you need the dropouts.
    You need the axle. It is a special axle just for giant. a regular shimano, a regular dt, a regular rs will NOT work.

    Don't be surprised if you have to drill the heads off the little screws that sammich the dropouts to the frame...
    At least they give you new ones with the kit.
