Good! It's about time you became cool.

The extra down tube makes it 50% safer than your regular bike.

Given that the normal bicycle frame is comprised of 7 tubes wouldn't
adding one more make the formula something like 8/7, or only 14%
stronger :-?

To a framebuilder, a complete boxed tube set is eleven tubes.

Crap. Now I'm really confused.
2 seat stays
2 chain stays
Seat tube
Bottom bracket (or doesn't this count as a tube?)
Top tube
Down tube
Head tube

And optionally
2 fork blades

So I get either 9 or 12. Which piece is optional?
