get different pegs? if youre bending dropouts, pegs are only like 10 bucks, so compare that to the cost of a frame or the shittyness of having bent dropouts

Grind on only the pegs, get plastic sleeves for the pegs?

Get bigger pegs?

Pull the wheel further back in the dropouts?

If you are hitting your dropouts and bending them you have weak dropouts or are slamming down into your grinds. Try softening your landings into them? Maybe don't hop a foot higher than the ledge you are aiming for?

its subrosa noster as the dropouts on it are big it does stick out abit it alright for now and I have just ordered the plastic sleeves but just wondering if any one else had this problem

I would think a subrosa frame would almost be made for the little ones (subrosa and shadow are like sister companies). Plus I think majority of heavy peg riders use little ones and have no problems. I run them w/o sleeves and have no problems. Plus I'm fairly sure majority of pegs have the same diameter or only 2mm wider so its not that. Its either product or user error.

Smooth or not that won't bend a dropout unless you slam down on them.

Most plastic sleeves or plastic pegs have a diameter bigger than 38mm.

38mm pegs that i know are LinoG, Animal MK3, Gsport Van pegs, odyssey jpeg lighter
