My buddy grabbed a Miele built with it. It's not MAX ovalized, but it's got what almost appear to be grooves or something in it (like it's hexagonal or something). According to him, it rides very nicely. It's not particularly light, IIRC.

Very late reply but I built a frame with this model tubeset in about 1987.
Currently restoring it in 2021, unfortunately over the years it has not been well maintained and is quite rusty so hope it will come back ok
