I am about to pull the trigger on a new El Guapo. I noticed it has the 1.5" head tube, and I was thinking of going with a standard 1.5" King headset and an 1.5" Fox Float 36 RC2. I saw in the geometry specs Titus states they were all taken with a flush-type headset. There is about an 11.5mm lower stack height difference here. Will that make a difference or is it too small to notice? I could go with the Cane Creek reduced flush-type headset and the 1 1/8" fork. I was only going with the 1.5" due to the slightly lower weight and extra strength. I didn't really see much of a downside. This is by far the nicest bike I have ever put together, so I'm guessing whatever I'll do, I'll love it. I just don't want to screw anything up and have to re-do it in a year.
Any and all opinions welcome, especially if there is someone from Titus lurking here somewhere.
Thanks in advance!
