Okay to start I bent my stock sprocket and I wont get a new one for a few weeks so is there any ways to bend the sprocket back for temporary use? Next my fork drop outs are bent so how can I make them last longer? Lastly I have a unsealed front hub and the wheel acts like its weighted when spun + it wont spin unless I have it in the fork with the axle nuts tightened so how do I fix this?

Some times I wonder...Is Jesus black?

I guess you could tap/hammer the sprocket on the ground till it's as close to being flat as possible. I assume that if it's not thin, then this probably won't work all too well. As for the dropouts, you could try simply using an adjustable wrench (a big one if possible), and just bend the btch back in place. As for the front hub, if you mean that it's too tight, just get 2 adjustable wrenches and mess with the cone/lock nuts.

The front isnt too tight, I just ment the wheel wont spin unless in the fork.

So like, if you try to spin it in your hands holding the axle, the whole axle spins? That's what I think.

It happen to me when I had an unsealed front hub it the lock ring. It need to be tighten so it locks and that will stop it from moving.
