Ask @Old No. 7 to check his shops' inventory. 

I wonder how optimistic/pessimistic the date estimate is though.  Buying parts last year, I'd get "in stock in three months" and then a "item shipped" a few days later.  On the flipside, I'd get "in stock next month" and then an e-mail later saying "three months".

Wild west right now!

The answer is no. Shop relies on the supply chain rather than keep excess inventory of stuff that doesn’t sell quickly. 

Thanks for checking. I'd be very surprised if a shop had one. It's a very specific and odd part to stock.

Thanks for the link. I doubt they actually have it. They list it as yellow and slower shipping which usually means they are ordering it from QBP. I did call them and leave a message.

Why don’t you have 46 make you one? His would probably be better quality anyway.

This might be the answer.

I think the date is a wild guess. It's chaos, so who really knows.

They said they do not have one, but if I bring the wheel in, they can order.  Told them you would drop it by tomorrow.

That's awesome. The wheel is at my LBS. I'll have Tim drop it off in TX. Dude has a Porsche. Should be a quick drive for him.

It's in there, somewhere... 

 

;)

I bet that's super boost and I need regular boost. If only the bike industry had standards.

What do you want it machined out of?  I have aluminum, stainless, brass and hot rolled in the garage.

We made axles for semis at the forge and they didn’t break. I can’t remember the grade of steel we used I just made the parts out of whatever steel came out of the furnace. It was up to other people to make sure the right steel was loaded. Sometimes they made costly mistakes but they were always caught before the parts were shipped. Actually I only remember it happening three times in 28 years and there was a lot of years without a mistake after each mistake.

I snapped it in two. I left it at the LBS with the wheel.

Well, I got nothin as far as a replacement axle, but if I couldn't find one in a timely manner, I would simply order a new hub and swap it in. The good news there is you have a 32 spoke wheel, so this would get you up and running. https://bdopcycling.com/product/xd642sb-b12/

Whenever I order from Bdop, it is always in my hands within a week.

Have you borken the rear axle before?  Didn't you post about that a while ago?  Or was this the wheel you were talkiing about?

Same wheel. I have a spare that I am using now. I'd just like to get this one repaired for the future.

Factory defect, they should give you a new one. I still say have a machine shop (or 46) make you a new one.

So how did the bike handle when it broke?

The wheel is four years old. Sram warranty has long passed. I was able to put it all back together and ride out. The thru-axle holds it all together.
