Can anyone explain the market trend for super compact cranksets on road bikes? I get it for gravel + adventure due to carrying luggage, rough terrain, longer duration etc. Just funny to see road go from massive dinner plates down to ~46. Thanks!
Well with Sram, they've gone down to a 10t cog at the rear. So now a 46t is comparable to a traditional compact 50. 48 instead of a 52 and a 50 instead of the old 53
