I'm ordering today and waiting the 6-9 months because my safety is important.

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 :-?

We can argue the fine details, but either way, the conclusion has to be
SAFETY!

or, I'm told, Carbon Fiber :-)

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


Bicycle:
Top, Seat, down, seat (2), chain (2), fork legs(2), steerer, head :-)

But when one brags about the super light "frame" that they just
finished they do not include the fork :-)

The light weight "audax" type bike I built (from tubes) has a 1700 gm.
frame :-) and a 680 gm fork :-(

I brag occasionally about the frame, although it certainly isn't the
lightest possible and ignore the forks :-)

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
Steerer

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


The bottom bracket is usually listed separately and not as a tube.
