Cranks. They take the force of all your weight coming down on them.

This. Probably your pedal spindles too.

I would say it depends on the type of riding that you do...

I bought new cranks because my stock ones weren't heat treated. Wasn't going to take the risk.

Cranks are. Then pedals. Then rims and axles.

As for the frame the front triangle takes the most stress but all depends how you ride and land

Yeah, if you fall hard and pegs can't take the impact, pedals and cranks take the most stress. And when you fall and the bike lands on the handlebars..Well, you guys have already seen my cracked bars video.

My couch.

Because my bike leans on the couch all day everyday because i don't ride at all.
I just have a bike so i could take pictures of it and make bike checks.

I agree with Lorenzo. I feel like it deals more with how you ride and your style and such

also, don't worry about buying new parts, just ride what you got til it breaks, then replace it

like the old saying goes, if it aint broke don't fix it

I'd say for me it is definitely cranks. Or axles. My axles have to take a bit of a beating with the stuff i have done. haha
