    Loose spokes and grips question

    I have not had any time to begin work on the Raynal. However, I did fill up the tires - boy are they dry rotted, but held air! I could not ride it because the tires are rubbing on the fender, that and one pedal is off! But the spokes seem very loose. The flex quite a bit when i push on them. Therefore, is this something as simple as tightening them down? I was planning on bring the wheels to the LBS to see if they can true them - will they take care of it there?

    The grips are going to need replacing. My LBS, who I was counting on, does not have anything like it and then showed me their catalog which did not have anything useful. Therefore, any suggestions where to pick up new ones?

    Thanks!

    When the LBS trues they will tighten, so leave that alone. Posting pics of your grips will help.
