    Titus El guapo headset choice

    I am about to orde an Medium El Guapo from one one. Although hesitating a bit because of the low BB problems.
    I'm putting a RS Sektor 150mm in the frame. The axle to crown is 535.

    I torn between the smoothie headset with the 15mm lower stackheight or the Slackset. Leaning towards the slackset because i want a bit more slack than my Heckler.
    67deg / 66deg HA is ideal i guess. But what will the HA be with the Sektor.

    Thanks!

    My recommendation is Smoothie, mostly for the extra stackheight. Slackset isn't really necessary for the V3 IMO since it already has slacker geo than the V2 (or at least it is supposed to).

    For reference, I have a V2 with Slackset and X Fusion Vengeance set around 555mm a2c. I've also run the Vengenace at 565mm, and I used to have a 545mm Lyrik. If I was buying a V3 now with my current fork height, I'd probably get a standard headset with the lowest possible stackheight.
