Hopefully the package won't get held up at customs. they might be curious as to what's inside (guns, scantily-clad women, or whatever).

Iíll have to look for some. MiniMax was short lived but is was pretty cool. It was basically EL OS drawn to the same shape as MAX tubing but lighter and smaller in diameter. Pics from the internet

Ill post pics as soon as it arrives.
From what I read, MiniMax was an attempt to further improve Max, by making it lighter (smaller diameters with the Max tubing). From what I know, Max tubing is a hell of a ride, and maybe the difference was very minor weight difference so thats why you dont see many MiniMax's often. Just a guess.

This frame reminds me of an EL-OS frame minus the chainstays (definitely has shorter chainstays). You couldve fooled me with an EL-OS sticker attached to the frame loll.. All the tubes look like normal shaped tubes..or are my eyes deceiving me..

I pulled it off the internet maybe it is just a EL OS frame. They are two different frames
