    trance rear axle conversion: help find parts

    2014 Trance 27.5
    ordered a wheel set with 142 rear Axle after finding the following parts:
    giant overpriced axle 73035
    giant dropout kit # 27331
    I ordered from one of the main online parts dealers "J" company, but they came back a day later and said backordered and the dropout kit might not be available at all. can't find the parts online anywhere.. I don't get it?

    so as far as I can tell, this still isn't available anywhere on the net. I was able to find the dropout kit at semi-local Giant shop. Guy said they came with the bikes. (So the shops just keep them and don't tell the customers so they can later sell them. 25.00)
    The giant branded axle is not available and is overpriced at sixty bucks. There are at least 2 alternatives, both of which are less than thirty bucks.
    Shimano and DT Swiss have 12mm axles with the 1.5mm thread pitch. Both I think come with a nut on end but you just take the nut off and screw the axle directly into your dropout. The smimano one I picked up for twenty five bucks at the shop, 171mm long, its slightly long, I added a fat washer to the quick release end to make up the 2mm gap.
    other option is the dt Swiss RWS e-thru axle.
