I really like the gearing on the 48/32 Praxis Alba crank that came on my gravel bike, but I don't think it's a very good crank. After just ~1K miles of gravel riding, the big ring is noticeably worn, I've had two bent teeth, and the (BSA threaded..) M30 BB is making an annoying click / creak on each pedal stroke with any decent amount of torque going through the crank. I took apart the crank last night and found that one of the cartridge bearings in the BB is already really gritty.
Anyway, not going to be getting another Praxis crank, but I do want to get another 48/32 crank.
Easton EA90 (47/32)
FSA Gossamer Pro BB386
GRX 800 (48/31)
Due to budget reasons I'm sorta leaning towards the FSA Gosshammer or Miche Graff (that uses a Hollowtech II BB), but am interested in opinions.
Also wondering if maybe I did some bad maintenance with the BB on this bike going to crap so fast. Would keeping the gap between the BB cups and crank filled with grease help keep junk out of there, or just attract more to be ground in if it does get through the dust covers?
