I was running through bottom brackets, but I had some super ****ty cartridge bearing bmx style cranks. I bought the race face evolve dh cranks with the external bearings. They are surpringly stiff and easy to install. I didn't think I would notice a stiffness increase. I haven't ridden them too much yet, since I tacoed my front wheel, so I can't tell you how the bearings are holding up, but I don't think I will regret this purchase. Oh and about the chain, I understand whipperman chains are the strongest, I'm thinking of getting the extra beefy single-speed one.
