Cannot obtain Stresses in individual tubes of a bicycle frame.

Hi, 

I'm doing a Static Structural analysis on a bicycle frame for my dissertation. My mesh is made of BEAM188 elements. I want to obtain direct stresses, maximum combined stresses and minimum combined stresses for the individual tubes in the frame. Basically what the beam tool allows you to obtain. Unfortunately, the beam tool only allows me to do it for the whole frame without being able to break the results up between different tubes and obtain some graphs. 

From beam results I am able to obtain axial forces, bending moments, torsional moments, shear forces and shear- moment diagrams along individual tubes with the use of paths is it possible to do the same for the aforementioned beam tool

Thanks for any help in advance. 

 

P.S.

I am using a student version, maybe it limits my ability to obtain such results?
