Actually, it's theoretically possible to do this, based on the concept of a post-tensioned structure. It works on the same principal as a spoked wheel, which relies on spoke tension to provide rigidity to the wheel. There are cables inside the frame tubes, which are tensioned such that the frame sections are compressed against each other. I'm not saying this is a good idea, just that it is possible in theory.
