Hi all,

Just saw a 595 origin in black, white & red decals. it has the (pre headfit) FSA headset.

Claimed to be vintage 2009...

As i cannot find any images of 2009 595's with this color scheme, was wandering what years the origin came in this scheme.

I am not sure if it has the outlined letters or the solid ones.
Also, the E-Post id the one with the wider red elastomer (i remember an older version with three different types).

Any help\pictures of 2008/7/6 in this color schemes would be great.
even greater - the PDF catalogs for these years (Chas ?)

Cheers,
Oren.

Is this the one you saw? Its a 2008 595 Origin Black. (sorry for the giant pic)



Most of the 2009 595's had the Headfit, although some of the early ones had the standard FSA internal HS.

The model years don't really coincide with the calendar year, so a 2008 frame would have been produced between June/July 2007, and June/July 2008. That said, the only difference between the 2008 and 2009 595 was the introduction of the Headfit system.
