Is Nemo tubing lightweight?

Where does Columbus Nemo fall in Columbus' world of bike tubing? Is it fairly light?

I have a Nemo tubed frame, and though I don't have the page bookmarked, I do recall quite distinctly that someone my size (Clyde) should NOT be riding it. I do anyway, and it's flexy in the BB, but ooh so comfortable.

And from Bob Jackson's site, "An Italian take on a nice tubeset with oversize profiles & a low weight make this a great climbers option." -- http://www.bobjacksoncycles.co.uk/pr...roducts_id=407

HERE's a good explanation of Nemo tubing. Basically, it's Nivacrome drawn to either .7mm or .65mm in the butts and .4mm in the center, and it has differential butting. Because of the very thin wall thickness, it's about as light as you'd want to go.
