    smoothie light headset

    Does anyone have an on-one smoothie light headset installed on their Inbred? I have an Inbred 29er and need
    to get it built up. I am going to try to go as light and economical as possible.I know light is not always
    economical(cheap).So with that said I have looked on the On-One site and can not find a weight of the
    smoothie light headset.Also what wheelset is everyone using? I know there is really no such thing as a "cheap"
    wheelset.Kind of looking at the Sun Ringle Black Flag.I want to try going tubeless.I will be very greatful for any
    help you can give. I currently ride a Niner EMD but wanted to try a steel frame and couldn't pass up the
    sale they had back a Christmas,just sorry I didn't get two frames for what they were on sale for.
    Thanks for any comments/help you can give.

    Thanks Furka,I saw the Smoothie Regular but was wondering about the "light" version.
    It is getting close to double the price but doesn't list the weight.

    smoothie light headset

    I have the black flag comp wheelset on my Lurcher and so far I am happy with the price I paid ($300 on clearance). The rear wheel needs some attention, but I didn't back down from rock gardens and 3' drops. I do wish the rim was a bit wider. I currently have 2.35 and it won't take a wider tire.
