Thank you@jefnvk.

I'd worry that a 46/30 crank would be too small for road-riding. Great for gravel, which is what the bike is designed for, but too low (IMO) for pavement. I have a 48-38-28x 14-34 on an old Cannondale and I spend all my time in the top two gears and the big ring---and it is often too slow (Rather, i cannot spin fast enough.) 46x11 is probably pretty close to 48x14. (Actually, if I did the math right ... not too bad?)

I still like the B'Twin better, personally ....
