    Modifying to requirements has so far been $150 for the chain rings, cassette and chain; another $200 for the gizmos from iGPSport and Garmin which are in the "nice to have" category.
    $350 and a bit of work to make things fit i.e. still less than the bike was "back then". It's a win in my book.

    Besides looking for the parts also taught me a few things patience is still a virtue.

    Today I finally got around to have a look at how much overlap there is on the "Gear Inches" front.
    Using "Ritzel Rechner" it turns out to be "not too bad".

    38/46 chain rings and 13 16 18 21 24 28 sprockets. Nicely bunched at the low end, but .... the proof of the pudding ... will be in the shifting while climbing.

    So with that 46/13 gear I'll be doing 35 kmh. at 75 cadence.
