Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I just wrote to Praxis - if they plan to release a 46/30 crank (since the Zayante Carbon only goes down to 42/48).

Answer from Praxis:
No plan. Not with all the deep road cassettes as regular spec now. Not needed. Normal cassettes like 11-30, 11-32 and 11-34 basically negate the need for a crank with 46/30. Especially when that would require a custom spider

Hm, I have the feeling there is a market for 46/30...especially in combination with a 11-34 cassette (what I currently ride..) but maybe I'm alone. If I had the money I would totally buy the Easton EC90 SL.

I ended up at the same place as you and purchased the Easton EC90 SL with 46-30 to get the lower gear range
@Stendhal, did you experience with the 45mm chainline of the Easton crank? What derailleurs are you using? My current FSA has 43.5mm chainline and the Easton has 45mm.

Hi, the bike is not yet build (the frame won't arrive until mid-June).
I plan to run Force 22 (with Force Red HRD shifters)
