    I'm looking for a deluxe gear calculator application for Windows. The Machineheads GearCalcPro is nice, but I'd have to send money to the UK to register and get the full version.

    How often do you need a gear calculator that it is worth buying commercial software for it? If I need to calculate a gear ratio I simply plug some numbers into a spreadsheet. It really isn't difficult at all, requiring no more math than multiplication and division. If you want to get fancy you may need pi...

    Tru - up to a point.
    The GearCalc from www.income-software.com shows quite a lot of other data apart from just gear changes, such as the effect of cadence and other things.
    worth a look.

    I recently posted a new gear calculator, free to use online. Take a look and see if it suits your needs. If not, this is a good time to make suggestions while the code is fresh in my mind.

    What you need may be something I can easily add. If not, the commercial packages are still available.
