    Need a ruling guys and gals....

    Ya know, I just looked at the pics of the bike I started building, and I'm not sure it qualifies. It's based on 2 girls frames with dropped top tubes. Not rally a Diamond, but not a straightbar or curvy Schwinn either? Call for a ruling..

    Dang, ONE rule, and I manage to break it!!

    Hmmm, I think that if it isn't a woman's cruiser frame, it should qualify. Anybody wants to second that motion?

    I think this all started with the "Right Brothers" Bike of Hooche's

    I think it's a Diamond Frame.
    I don't think a Womens Frame would qualify...
    In the Diamond Frame ( Road Bike Racing / Riding ) world,
    Ladies Ride a Diamond Frame.

    I don't want to be a Schitfurbrain's...but if The only Rule
    is a "Diamond Frame" build off,then we could leave it
    at just that.

    Nothing Personal at all Ultracycle!!!! ( and I stress that statement )
    Just my 2 cents.

    It's technically called a safety frame, back when all the other bikes were high-wheels.

    hmmm... would this be considered a "diamond frame" It looks more like a drunk diamond frame

    I am acutally building this bike finally, its cool that a prospective build off has started right as I pick up a new project. I have some cool parts from ebay pending right now. Imagine a 7 speed free hub with a roller brake on middle weight rims.

    Okay, here's the girls bike project. Started out like this:

    and this is where it's headed:

    It's probably 16 kinds of unsafe, but nobody lives forever.

    It may not be build off worthy, and that's fine. No offense taken clothespin. I was just being lazy and trying to avoid hunting down another project!

    I think that a slight bend in the toptube can be overlooked
