Anyone know if a Look HSC4SL Carbon Fork is compatible with a traditional non-integrated headset? Did they make different version of this fork, one for intergrated and one for non-integrated? Thanks

just looks different..

The only difference is the shape of the crown. Pictures have been posted of integrated forks with a conventional headset and it doesn't look too bad.

As C-40 says, there is no functional difference between 'traditional' and 'integrated' forks - the differences are only aesthetic. On 'integrated' forks the top of the fork is typically wider, to match the diameter of an integrated head tube. But the diameter matching is only for looks, not mechanical function.

About the only performance difference is that integrated forks are a few grams heavier (because of the extra material to make the top of the crown wider).
