    Looking for 12x142 drop outs for 2014 Orbea Occam.

    My bike came with the 135 thru rear but it can be converted to take 12x142 hubs if i put the 12x142 drop outs which the frame comes ready for. But i cant seem to find them anywhere. I contacted Orbea but they wont get back to me until tomorrow. Help is greatly appreciated.

    Got a response from Don at Orbea USA and i have included his message to me that contains information that might be useful to anyone else wanting to go this route.

    (From Don @ Orbea)

    I can get you the dropouts for the Rock Shox Maxle, but you have to order the Maxle separately. Our part number for the dropout kit is 154300D6 and you can order them from any dealer, local or online as well as by calling in and placing a CC order over the phone. 501-280-9700.

    You should be able to get the Maxle from any shop, but it is important to ORDER THE 150mm MAXLE! I stress again, 150mm... Even though the hubs and dropouts measure 142mm, you need the extra length of the 150mm version to pass through the concentric pivots.

    These will get you set up running 12x142 and it make a noticeable difference on this bike. Plus, well... let's face it, you'll look fabulous rolling on those Hope hubs... I love Hope stuff, such beautiful precision craftsmanship.
