@everyone thnx!

It all depends on the bike. Some use rivets, which will have to be drilled out, some are attached using screws, some are simply welded. You may have to get "creative".

Chain ring (at peddle end) is attached to one crank. Usually permanently.

At the wheel end you can remove the cassette with care. It's held on with a ring that screws ANTI CLOCKWISE. you may need a hammer and punch to remove if you don't have a suitable wrench.
