Not at all the same. The Minion is a PM. The PIMP is close to a timmy. I would dump a timmy for a Minion anyday. Is it a 06 or an 07? Both have innerchangeable parts w/ the PMs so you can slap an ultralight frame on it and be set! I was lookin into Minions, but im gonna go Ego. As long as it it in good condition, youll love the trade. Off hand though, you can get the Minions fairly cheap (300ish) Not sure what your Timmys worth.
