1x10 Crankset

I'm building up a Raleigh RXM to try out CX with. It is threaded for an English 68mm BB. I'd like to buy all new crankset components and am looking for the most versatility.
I will be running Shimano SLX shifter and RD with a Sunrace cassette. I'm a beginner and don't want to spend a ton, but would like something kinda nice.

What do you guys suggest? I'm leaning toward something with a replaceable spider but not sure.

So basically anything.

A Sram 1X gxp crank or Shimano w/ Wolftooth 1X ring make the most sense to me.

I'm running an SLX derailleur and sunrace cassette. I've got a Campagnolo crank with a narrow wide ring.

Really anything will work.

I have 135bcd so have fewer options for narrow wide chainrings. Anything with 130 would probably have more availability.

I've used the SRAM Force1 1x crank with Shimano XTR rear derailleur / cassette / etc. It worked flawlessly. I used SRAM chains, but I doubt it mattered.

Tough to beat the Rival 1X GXP crankset, normally about $150, including a 42T X-Sync narrow-wide chainring. And it's trusty 5-bolt 110bcd, so you can change rings without hunting around for some bizarre bolt pattern.

+1 any 110 BCD crankset would be great. I know wolf tooth makes 1x chain rings from 34 teeth to 52 in 2 tooth increments for 110 BCD. You should be able to find the right gearing for just about any terrain with that range and an appropriate cassette.

Rival 1.

1X out of the box, replacable spider, you can run direct mount on it.

Doesn't cost a ton and it's kinda nice.

Common Cyclocross 1 by, has been a Disc chain guard in place of a chainring for the outer
and a 'chain minder' or a inner disc chainguard, to keep the chain from coming off to the inside, on a road crank.

cassette 12-27, 42 t chain ring.. low gear is your feet,
getting off, throwing the bike on your shoulder and running, then jumping back on ..

keep your momentum up , or get lapped , by those who do..

gravel grinders I suppose* don't have course barriers set up to force
a dismount, remount , at speed..

*none around here..
