Amazonian Biking - cool outfits

On the BBC news website today is a photo spread about a festival for the dead in the amazon. Two of the photos, one and six, show the indians with their bikes. I wonder how much they have to deal with cars. I've never seen a frame like the blue one in photo six. I wonder if the circular tube connecting the top, down and seat tubes is stock, a cracked frame repair or decoration.

Here is the link, I'm not sure how permanent the BBC links are but its a start:
