Sorry, I meant all other things being equal. Round tubes address the for ces of bending and torque more efficiently than other shapes. My point about

tube diameter is larger tube diameter makes a stiffer frame but it adds weight, and there is a lower limit of wall thickness.

No, not so fast, I think that is far more determined by the main triangle size. And the tube diameter and shape is far more critical. dave frogeye@porterscustom.com
