46-30 is an excellent combo, and very popular with randonneurs. It seems like this popularity has generated quite a few more options. 50+ teeth is sized for racing, so is too much gear for a solo cyclist. I don't want a wider gear range, or more gears, I want more gears that will actually get used.

More options, with a traditional look, (from $$$$ to $) are the TA Carmina, IRD compact, and Sugino XD500.

Can't seem to add any pictures since the new website.
