I found this Ciocc made from the MiniMAX tubeset, it's mainly fillet brazed because of the non-round tube ends.
I weigh in the140's (lbs) and the bike's dynamics sustain my hardest efforts for what that's worth (sorry for the poor photographic time/location):

That is beautiful. The Nivachrome tubing was intended to be fillet brazed. I think I only ever saw one Mini MAX in person when I sold a Bianchi built with it. I was surprised more builders didnít use it but sadly for steel the cycling public was being conned into believing carbon fiber was better for them, so I think it just got lost in the dustbin of cycling history.

That is beautiful Coicc, are there more pics elsewhere?
