Cranksets

View:

A modern-day crankset is typically made up of cranks, chainrings, spider and an axle. It is an essential component of your bike's drivetrain and spins on the bottom bracket bearings. Simply put, when you’re riding, the crankset works as a lever to convert pedal pressure into forward motion.

There are a number of different configurations available depending on your riding discipline. As your budget increases, the quality of materials used improves, whilst becoming lighter in weight, stiffer and more durable. If you’re on a budget, pre-loved listings from private sellers can be a great way to grab a bargain.

If you’re after a more information on cranksets and how they function, head on over to the BikeExchange blog for in-depth guides to both road bike groupsets and mountain bike groupsets.

If you’re still in doubt, contact the relevant seller – buying a suitable crankset can be a confusing process.
