Last year, when I was in Italy, I saw a couple who were both riding the bike you're asking about on a world tour. They seemed pretty happy with their bikes. It may not be a big deal, but i believe they are now made of aluminum--lighter but more prolematic if the frame breaks. In some ways, lala may have been lucky to get the last of the steel frames.
Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.
