Thanks; we'll wait and see, won't we? :)

It did come from someone who works at one of the Australian Campag distributor, so he's not inclined to make it up.

So chances could be he was told when he was last in Italy or on the phone to them, however they are not at production level. Really don't know. Sorry.

Incredible, that colour scheme + the C59 EPS mix of the tubes is perfect! My dream frame, hats off to you Calnago.

@lirec15: thanks, yes this is a very special frame for me.

@michel2: the Nemesis rims are indeed still in production although not in the anodization you see on this bike. I believe 2009 or 2010 was the last year for this "bronze" anodization. Plus, these rims weigh ~440 grams. The ones since then are a darker gray anodization and weigh ~465 grams and have some different etchings. As for how easy they are to get, it depends on where you are I suppose. They were not easy to get where I live in North America. Probably easier to find in Europe. LionelB seems like he might be able to provide a source if you want some. Great rims and still being used in pro races like Paris Roubaix today.

They are really easy to find in Europe and many wheelbuilders offer them. They cost 60 to 70 euros.

I ordered an EPS in September of 2012 and received an EPQ in May of 2012. There was communication with the factory; and it appears that a shortage of parts for the EPS lead to the EPQ. I really like the look of the EPS more and purchased a NOS frame and had it repainted by CyclArt in Southern California.
I have attached a few pictures of the bikes.

Colnago America told me that only 24 EPQ frames were imported into the United States. I will likely not see one while I am out riding.

Hey, my thread's been hijacked! :lol:

I'm loving my EPQ by the way. It's a long story, but the first one they sent me had the "new" paint scheme which I didn't want. In the end they did another one for me (the one you see at the beginning of this thread) but it was a long time coming.
