the farther apart the toptube and downtube are from each other the stronger the headtube is. its all about how much more leverage there is when the two tubes converge on a single point rather than it being placed on the ends.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

In other words, it disperses the stress over a larger area. If all the stress is focused at one point, the more likely there is to be a failure. That's why it's easier to chop a tree down with an axe rather than a baseball bat.
