Does anyone who will be out this weekend know the correct way to tighten spokes? My rear wheel has quit a few loose ones. I would try myself but don't want to get the wheel all out of whack.

Adam, thanks for the tires! I pinched my front tube so I gotta grab a new one today. And possibly a rim strip cause it came out and I replaced it with electric tape.

Here's the bead breaker that I have.

I'm just gonna grab a tube at Cycle Gear at lunch when I drop the tires off at the Westpark recycle center. Thanks though! Bring it Saturday in case anyone has a flat.

Anyone had a problem dropping off old tires there? I've done it in the past but the last time I was turned away so I paid $2.50 each to drop them off at Discount Tire. I just called 311 and they told me that's where I should take them.

Rim strip also came out but I used electric tape. Maybe I'll pick up a new one of those too. This was my first tire change on the DRZ and I found it has rim lockers. What psi do you guys run out there? I never go below 20 cause I didn't have rim lockers before....
