I have two of them. My AWOL gravel bike has the Sugino OX601 and my custom Zukas road bike has the White Industries VBC, both with 46-30 chainrings. I'm running 12-36 10sp on the rear of the AWOL and 11-28 11sp on the Zukas. Both setups provide very usable gearing range and spacing for the terrain they are used on and my preferences. Both fit on 68mm threaded BB shells, the Sugino with external bearings with an interface similar to Shimano and the White Industries with a square taper BB. I have heard that White will soon be releasing an external bearing version of the VBC crank.
