    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.
