Default Zildjian sweet ride just as a crash?

I normally use two crashes (18" and 17" projection) but recently my 17" has cracked. I'm using a Mega Bell Ride currently but eventually am going to sell it to a friend and then I planned on buying a Zildjian Sweet Ride, although I need another crash as soon as possible for gigs. I have considered just buying the Sweet ride now and using it as a crash and still using the mega bell as a ride. Eventually I will then get ride of my Mega Bell and switch the sweet ride over to my main ride and buy another crash. Is this a good idea or what?

I think that Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters uses a 21" Zildjian Sweet Ride as a crash/ride.

I have a Sweet Ride and well I think it can do whatever you want with it. It can be crashed but because it's a 21", it's a BIG deep sound. This is certainly a great cymbal to have--it makes room for itself. You will end up using it more than you think.

YES!!
The 21 Sweet Ride is a supreme sounding crash cymbal.

I have 2 (one on the giging kit, one on the rehearsal kit) and I love them.

One of Zildjian's best cymbals for crashing EVER.

The bell is awesome, you can ride it, crash/ride it, crash it, suspended swell, and you don't have to beat the crap out of it to get it to speak.

All my other cymbals are Sabian, but I still use this particular Zildjian.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I was wondering, I have a 20'' K Ride, and it sounds absolutely wonderful when crashed, but I was a little concerned, it won't do the cymbal harm, will it? That's a lot of vibrating going on there, but it's ok if I hit it with correct technique, right?
I have it set up loosely so that it swings nicely, but I was just wondering, because that's not what it was made for...
