Does not work on Anthem X 29er
I ordered these for my Anthem X 29er and then realized that they will only work on the 27.5 Anthem.

Can I use dt Swiss rws on this dropout kit?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that's what I use on mine. But you have to make sure you have the one with the correct pitch/thread. They have more than one 12mm thru axle. It's the dt Swiss rws E-thru alloy axle.

Hi, does it work intrance 2016?
Cristobal on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work on a 2016 trance, you will need a 12×142 axle and hub to
go with it.
I have it on a 2015 giant trance, really stiffened up the rear triangle.
The selection box only says 5x135QQR Dropping, but I need 12x142. What comes with this? Trying to convert my 2015 Gaint Anthem 3 to 12mm TA
KarlD on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Giant has interchanable rear wheel mounting system where you can change the mounting so you cam accept 12mm thru axle. If you already bought a wheel that works with 12mm thru axle, you need to buy a Giant brand thru axle if you have not done so already. There is a Youtub video that will help you to see how it is done. His name is Clint Gibbs. Search for Giant Anthem thru axle.
What size of bolts are these
Josh on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you mean the thread spacing for the axle: it is the coarse thread
pitch used by Shimano E-Thru and compatible parts.
If you mean the axle diameter: 12mm
If you mean the small bolts that are included: I have no idea. They
are the correct size for Gaint frames. If you are asking because you
need to replace existing ones then take either the existing bolt or the
existing drop-out piece to a hardware store and try different metric
bolts until you find the one that fits.
Will this work on 2017 Stance ?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Used these on 2014 Giant Trance
I need to convert the 5mm dropout inserts to 10mm. I bought 10x135mm wheelset from you. Should I change to 12x142mm wheels and get this kit?
SCOTT G on Apr 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You need not change the wheels, you can find hub conversion adapters depending on your hub.
Are the threads proprietary to where I have to buy the giant axle too or can I buy any same size axle to work with the dropout kit conversion?
Ceasar on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Generally, most frames have specific axle widths and thread pitch. Occasionally, other axles will fit, but it is a better bet to buy the branded axle.
Will this work on a 2015 giant xtc? And if so would I choose the option for the anthem/trance or for the reign?
Jeremy B on Jun 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi I have used this on a 2015 Anthem 27.5 and a LIV LUST 2015. Make sure you hanger search GIANT ANTHEM DERAILLEUR HANGER, 1280GS834609D1 and if your hanger looks the same your good to go.
HI GUYS, WILL THIS KIT WORK ON A XTC SLR 3 - 2016 MODEL...??
