I’m not necessarily chasing weight savings… I made a no haggle offer on a lugged frame I really loved but the seller was super slow to provide the geo. Like weeks slow… so I moved on. I also saved ~3/4lb. It’s a nice bonus.Not everyone is chasing weight savings, and the loss of lugs is a minor one.
Over in the "Saddle Test" discussion you are concerned with the aesthetic of a saddle, but here it seems to be all about weight. While a quality TIGed frame is pleasing to the eye, it pales in comparison to quality lugged frame.
You can have a look-see at some beautiful lug work at these two sights. And there's plenty more like this out there.
