A friend of mine has one on his polo bike.

Can't speak to long term durability as far as mud/muck but it seems pretty beefy and I've seen it take some substantial impacts and come out just fine.

I can't remember specifically, but I'll look next time we play, I could swear there was a small braze on, on the drive side just at the lip of the bottom bracket shell, but I can't confirm that without double checking.
It is absurdly smooth to use and you can shift absolutely anywhere in your stroke or notstroke and it doesn't hickup or anything. 'specive though.
