Litespeed to drop integrated headsets for '06?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ghisallo has always used a regular headset.

We know the Ghisallo and Vortex will use regular headsets. According to competitivecyclist.com, the Ultimate is getting an update for '06 as well (non-integrated HS), so it might be true that integrated headsets are out for some, most, or all of the Litespeed offerings.

I recently scored a '05 Ultimate. I have no hangup over integrated headsets, especially when I get a great frame at a wholesale price.
