    2014 Trance X through axle

    I just received my 2014 Trance X frameset and had a question for others with a complete bike or frameset.

    Mine came with a 142x12 DT axle, but no dropouts to run it. It came with 3, yes 3 sets of 135x9mm QR adapters but no hangar or dropout for 142.

    My interpretation of the website and shop folks I talked to was that it came with all the bits to convert. Anyone else have this issue?

    When I was looking at one of the trances at the shop and asking questions about the system, I was told that users could order the frameside adaptors to convert from the 9mm to the 12mm. I'm not certain how that carries over (if at all) to what the frame set is supposed to be.

    Confirmed with Giant - they are suppose to come with the 142 adapters, but they're back ordered until December. It's great when companies don't relay this information to shops so they can tell the consumer...what a load of bs.

    So if you're looking at a frame kit (or complete from what i was told), don't bother if you're set on a through axle kit.

    Well that sucks. Hopefully they'll at least hook you up when they have them in stock.
