I have a Thruster cruiser and I don't want to overtighten the rear wheel, fear of damaging the drop outs, but if I don't, the wheel slips when I pedal down hard.

Is there any new school item I can buy and install that will help keep the rear wheel from slipping?

I know such an item is available, but are there any that fit an OLD school ride?

Thanks in advance...
Tom

OH I dont need to go to Mail order really, I was just want to get a set that fit the Thruster correctly. There was never anything like that for BMX (that I knew of anyway) BITD.

I'll probably take the bike and go local, thanks for the assistance all.
