    Creaking has started from the bottom bracket and crankset area, I’ve ruled out the pedals. There’s no obvious play in anything.
    How would you determine whether it’s crankset/crank arm OR the bottom bracket?

    New BB is cheap – throw a new one in.

    Chain off the chain Ring and you’ll get a better idea of the state of the BB.

    What bike?
    My neighbour was adamant that his BB was the problem. I ended up replacing his main pivot bearings as the BB was just fine.
