Never even seen them in green. Couple of the other bits floating around IF you are lucky.

Yeah, these are team issue only apparently. I quite like the look of the green Hope stuff but not enough to pay a premium for it.

Yeah not sure if this green is team or not as its for the older brakes and such. Only seen a headset of the same colour and that was on here (oh and a seatclamp).

D'ya know what, i think you guys could be right about them not being the same colour as team green. My bad. Sorry. That'll teach me not to pay attention fully... :facepalm:
