I was thinking of trying the Schwalbe One tires at 173g but I am concerned they won't work well in ghetto tubeless mode. I have heard that the Marathons will work ghetto tubeless so I was also thinking of those, or the Continental Urbans ghetto tubeless.

Or maybe a lightweight tube is a better idea .. 83g looks to be a standard 16" tube weight. Maybe try the Turbolito latex tubes at 34g?? The tubeless sealant would weigh about that.
when you're finished please post pictures of the bike, very interested in seeing it, thanks
