When I acquired my 1984 Nishiki roadbike in 2009 its gearing was also too high for hilly Colorado Springs. I put a smaller small chain ring on the front for $15. Problem solved until last year when my 56 year old knees asked me to buy lower gearing for Christmas. So both my road bikes got more widely spaced gears in the back. Still, not expensive.
