I have a 46//30T in the front and an 11-36T in the back. It works fine. By extrapolation, a single chainring ≥ 30T in the front would work fine.

From my experience, there are more selections for crank arms, chainrings, and bashguards in the 104bcd.

For what bike or use case? For road, I like 42, 44, or 46t up front for 1x. For gravel, I think I'd want a 36t or 38t front with a 40t cassette in the rear. For MTB, 34t front, 40-46t cassette in the...
