    Air 9 Carbon Head Badge

    Does anybody know how to tell whether Air 9 Carbon has new aluminum badge or old magnesium?

    Niner Encyclopedia says that old magnesium has integrated cable stops and new aluminum uses ferrules. But i see ferrule type badges on all pre 2012 pictures.

    Thanks

    Integrated Stops = Magnesium
    Big Holes = Aluminum

    By ferrules they mean the special lipped ferrules that hold the housing in the headbadge vs. a typical 4mm housing ferrule.
