Hopefully it's a little more compliant as a tube.
Apparently, it was very hard on tools, and you could destroy the tubes pretty easily during construction. Nothing you'd want to build touring bike with. For a track bike, though, it seems like a nice way to get a lugged frame that's still nice and stiff. Or that's my hope. If I can manage to snap it, I'll be very proud, and then I'll get to buy my NJS bike.
