Does the 46-30T GRX FC-RX600 Crankset fit a 92mm bottom bracket (BB92)?

Works well but
- I've used it several times
It’s as plain as a black crank gets. No design touches. Almost makes me not want to clean My Niner SLT steel gravel bike because mud has more character than this crank. So go XT or all SRAM - for this price, we deserve good looking gear. Shifting is clean with the GRX front derailleur. I’m running old 105 brifters.

Climbing is more doable. Climbing better
I bought this crankset for my gravel bike because the 30 tooth ring allows me to spin where I previously ground to a halt on steep gravel climbs or more technical sections of maintained roads. I haven't had any problems shifting to the smaller ring as long as I pay attention to changes in the terrain ahead. My mechanic explained how Shimano attended to all the details when they designed this component and he set it up perfectly. I am super pleased with how it has helped me to ride better.

Does the job
- I've used it several times
The big concern I had was whether I'd spin out the 46x11 on moderately steep descents, and the answer seems to be no. So if you're not doing road rides that hammer the downhills, the 46/30 crankset (depending on your cassette) solves the gearing problem for steep dirt climbs. What keeps this from being 5 stars is that the 2.5mm offset is pointless because (and probably for most others) tire clearance is limited by my frame, not by my chainline. And because of this 2.5mm offset, Shimano says you have to use the GRX FD, so it turns out to be a more expensive solution than just replacing the crankset. Edit: having spent more time on it, I spin out on the descents a little sooner than I'd prefer, and the obvious solution would seem to be the more expensive 48/31 GRX crankset. The additional complication is that your typical Shimano RD has a max front chainring tooth difference of 16, and the GRX crank is 17 teeth, so then you're looking at having to go with the GRX RD, which because it has a max low sprocket of 40t, means you have to ditch your 11-34 cassette and get at least an 11-40, with the wider spacing between gears. Long story short: the 46/30 is worth the trade off of better dirt climbing for worse road descending.

Ive got an fc5800 105 crankset. Is this a direct replacement?

Will an Ultegra crank fit on here? Thinking of ability to swap in a stages PM.

To answer my own question, it fits on the spindle. Q factor is 2.5mm inward compared to right side. And won't fit on some frames with wide chainstays. I went with the 810 and a new stages PM.

Compatible with 10-speed drivetrains, correct? I thought with front chainring doubles there is no such thing as incompatibility between 10-speed and 11-speed. Thanks!

Hey John, thanks for the question. To sum up the answer, yes it will work with a 10-speed but front shifting would be affected a bit.

Finally with this 46 x 30 GRX Crankset, us fat slow old guys can actually keep the rubber down on the super steeps. When I built my gravel bike with Competitive Cyclist, I thought 'oh 50 x 34 crankset with a 11-34 cassette, perfect'. Nope. Struggled badly with road gearing riding the painfully steep Verdugo Mountains here in Glendale. With this new 46 x 30, there is hope that us mortals can get up the gnarly climbs! And the 46 is way more optimal for rollers and slightly uphill sections than the 50 ever was. I personally am not a 1x fan so this is a game changer.

I'm with you. I have a 46/34t paired with a 32-11t cassette, and it's not enough for steep gravel. Do I REALLY need the new front derailleur, or will my old Ultegra 6800 FD work?

In exactly the same place, and even if I’m on the thin side, doing Beaudry with 34x34 is possible, but not much fun. I’m guessing I’m going to spin out the 46x11 on road descents, but at my age I’d rather semi-coast the downhills in order to enjoy the dirt climbs more. Maybe we’ll cross paths in the Verdugos. I’ll be on a Canyon Grail.
