with that 11 t mtb cassette top gear , a 46 30t crank would do better ,
but often parts picks are a cost consideration,
Brifter, FD, and cranks a set.
for touring, Shimano's 90's K 7 speed cassette 13-34 was a great ratio combination.
but marketing wanted to sell Speeds as a increasing number of cassette cogs ..
My personal preference , triple crank , 24 on the crank 28 on the hub.
when not hauling panniers full of stuff. ..
