Bought a Marin San Anselmo 2011 during the summer sales to replace my mountain bike for commuting/country lanes, great bike except the forks are a lot more flexy than I would like.

I managed to get a brand new set of Kinesis Crosslight Cyclocross forks off fleabay for £25, which are the non disc versions in the link; ... ike-forks/

Only realised after I got them that my San Anselmo has as semi-integrated headset, the kind with the bearing cups hidden in the headtube instead of a fully integrated one;

The Crosslights are listed as being for an integrated headset, will they be compatible with my bikes semi-integrated one?

    Yes, as long as the steerer tube is long enough, the only interface is on the 1 1/8th steerer, neither knows what is beyond that!

    Currently riding a Whyte T130C, X0 drivetrain, Magura Trail brakes converted to mixed wheel size (homebuilt wheels) with 140mm Fox 34 Rhythm and RP23 suspension. 12.2Kg.
  • Perfect, will have a go at trimming the steerer and fitting a new star nut at the weekend so I can get them switched over.
