Is your wheel slammed? If it is, trim your dropouts to be flush with your peg. Sounds like you are crushing them.

What Frame are you running? A Hub Guard is not a magical solution to bending Drop Outs because its a HUB Guard. It will support the Drop Out a little more but will not solve the fact that i am 99% sure you Drop Outs are NOT Heat Treated so will be a LOT weaker than Heat Treated Drop Outs! For now you are gunna have to get a piece of pipe on them & VERY CAREFULLY bend them back to a better shape & then i suggest you upgrade to a better Frame WITH Heat Treated Drop Outs.

Step 1: Get a big crescent wrench
Step 2: Grasp the dropout with the wrench
Step 3: Bend that bitch back
Step 4: Go ride.

I recall seeing a bunch of rails and steps around the river, some banks, some ledges by the school. A good skatepark at the Chelsea YMCA

If you never want another bent dropout, get either a federal frame or a sunday frame! and a hubguard will save your butt. On Empire my frame (Federal Renegade) is for 290 and it is bomb proof! haha i beat the crap out of it and it is perfect!
