I did that to my Motobecane Super Mirage crank in 1988. I was at a near crawl on a slight uphill, in probably eighth or ninth gear. I tried to force the slow acceleration. My trusty steed could not withstand the weight of my downthrust, making its true will known to me only too clearly. I still have that bike. It's gettin' pretty rusty from the beach and all. But I maintain it and ride it all over town. It's my heavy bike.
So, I do not really consider it may have effect.
