Worth building a bike around, that's for sure.10sp downtube shifters and a lighter crankset/BB combo, a good 3 lbs off that bike.

Given the hills and black wheels, a Shimano 105 (5600 or 5700) long cage RD along with about a 12-32 cassette will climb. Pair it with a compact crankset and you've got a climber plus.

Sky's the limit.
