This.

The 46/30 crankset is a popular one for good reason. The 30crank/33 combo is about 1.5 cogs lower then your low gear now. Also you will get stronger climbing that hill, Even after a long ride. While the 46T cog maintains most of your high gear. I agree the 10/33 cassette or freewheel doesn't sound right. 48/30 is an insanely high 130 gear inches. If you are correct about the chainring this change will still be valid. You may need a new front derailleur, not sure if the rear one can accommodate a few extra teeth of take up
