It may be that appropriate 4-bolt chainrings smaller than 30 are not available?
In any case, 3x9 can be set up with a very wide range.
It's been a while since I read about the bcd change, so am not 100% sure now. But yup, I've done the change to 26 on two bikes both with fsa cranks, s and the fd"'s handled it fine as is and the 13t jump is fine also to live with, for me anyway.
