    Trust us, though, diamond frames can be crashed just as nicely as any other frame style.

    Come on everybody, let's have some of those disaster pics!

    Yeah, they really aren't at all crashproof. Almost all "mens" bikes are diamond framed. Womens style bikes aren't so stiff, but actually, if you start running into things fast, most bikes are going to get wiped out.

    diamonds are the strongest substance in nature, so unless you are making your bikes out of plutonium or something from saturn it will be the strongest. Diff!!!
