Do you know why it is getting bent? Usually a bent hanger is the result of a crash or some other external trauma. Are you laying the bike over on its derailleur when you take a break? A big no-no. Is the rear derraileur getting caught in your rear wheel when you shift into your largest rear cog? That's an adjustment problem. Are you running over sticks or other crap on the road that takes a swipe at your bike?

Buy another hanger or two, and keep an eye out to see why your hangers are breaking.
maybe you should replace it with smaller sizecyclopathic
