Chainset

 

A set of components consisting of the cranks and chainring(s). The chainset is attached to the bike via the bottom bracket. In quality chainsets, the chainrings are removable which makes them easy to replace when worn.

A few websites consider the bottom bracket as part of the chainset, though most of the major online retailers do not.

A US term for chainset is ‘crankset’.
