Vaya 2 2x10 gearing

Recently purchased a 2012 Vaya 2 and find the 48/34 11-32 gearing a bit high for this old guy and the local hills.
Disc brakes add confidence for descents. Bike is 2x10 sram apex. Looking at options, I keep coming back to changing
crankset to Sram GX-1000 36/22. This would give me 19-89inch gearing without needing to change cassette and RD.
What concerns me is I don't see this combination used often and wonder why?

Edit: Apparently I rambled: The question is would switching to Sram Crankset GX-1000 36/22 be a good solution to
lower gearing. While keeping original 11-32 cassette and med cage derailleur.
