    ritchey wcs vantage 142 ta - 135 qr.

    I am a complete noob to bike building and when I decided to build a bike I started buying parts and later realized I need to pay attention to numbers in listings. I bought a Ritchey wcs vantage 27.5 wheelset with a 142 x 12mm thru axle, alas my frame has a 135mm dropout. I know that a hub conversion kit exists that will fix my problem. But I can't find any vendors with stock. If anyone knows where to look would be great.

    Looks like I need a new wheelset. I honestly can't find any vendor who stocks the 135mm rear axle kit. I even contacted Ritchey who gave me the part number of the part I can't source. Not all that helpful knowing the part number of the part no-one has access too. Pity because the wheels look nice and I will probably have to swap them for something much cheaper. Considering these wheels are sold with a description of optional 135mm axle conversion I am pissed the conversion is non-existant.

    That's too bad. I was eyeing some Ritchey wheels. I need 135QR also. I tried contacting them about points of engagement, and whoever I talked with didn't even understand what I was asking about.
