It's significant to me that the specifications for the World Series frame say "Round profile lugged steel tubing", while the specifications for the slightly more expensive Acciaio frame states "Dedacciai Zero Replica triple-butted steel with boron"...
It doesn't clearly state whether the tubing is hi-ten, chromoly, or something else. It also doesn't indicate whether it's straight gauge or butted.
I would be skeptical and ask for more details.
