whats that bar going along the bottom from head to bb? withthe 4 white zip ties? part of the frame?
It's a tire to keep the downtube from getting dented whe rocks are kicked up by the front tire, you wouldn't believe some of the stuff that a wide, knobby, soft-compound tire will pick up and throw at the frame.

I received an 1/8" deep dent in the downtube of my CC bike once, and that was just running Mutanoraptor 2.4s, a big tire is capable of much worse.

edit - unless you were just talking about the down tube itself, which is part of the frame.
