    How much can my XC crank take?

    I just barely bought a new Race Face Evolve crankset W/ an SRX bb. I really like it a lot. It's really stiff and light, and it shifts well. I'm just wondering how much abuse it can take. I wont be doing any big hucks or anything (max of five feet) since I only have a hardtail. Will my lightweight XC crank and bb hold up to that? I only weigh around 130-135 pounds, so I'm usually not too hard on my equipment. Please reply before I do something stupid without knowing if I can!

    The cranks can take some abuse (5ft works well). That bb sucks. I have blown through a few.

    Ithought (in the past) evolve was a cost effective freeride crank? Not a xc crank.

    If I remember correctly, RF makes the Evolve in a DH/FR and an XC model.
