Ask ScooterDad: I have a mgp scooter with IHC compression. I am getting Grit invader bars 31.8mm size. It has a starnut installed for ICS. Can I still use the bars for my IHC mgp scooter????? Please help!

Answer: 

As long as they aren't oversized bars, they would work for IHC, but you'll need to drill the starnut out of the bars or push it far up into the bars. Be very careful if you decide to drill it out.

Ask ScooterDad: MaddGear fixed handle bars...Can I really have the bar cut down? Spent some good money on this thing, but son insists bar is too high. I dont' have the tools, but do I just ask someone to lop a couple inches off? Help.

Answer: 

Yes, you can cut bars down, but there are a few things you need to know. First, if it has a slit in the bars, that slit needs to be recreated after cutting the bars shorter. The slit should be in the same spot and the same width and length. Second, if your bars have a starnut inside the bars, such as for ICS, it will need to be pushed further up into the bars equivalent to the amount you cut off.

Ask ScooterDad: so any way i have a grit fluux with a HIC and an integrated headset. I just fried my headset and i am trying to buy a new one that is sealed. i bought a lucky green. will it fit my head tube.

Answer: 

The Grit Fluxx comes with a non-integrated headset (it looks like some might even be threaded, which I would argue is not HIC). Integrated headsets should be interchangeable, but I don't know if non-integrated headsets are. They might work, but you should try it out before buying. It's definitely not integrated though.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi I would like to buy a flex fender brake but i can only afford one with 2 holes. I have one hole in my deck and i cant drill a 2nd one so could i just not use one of the bolts??. Would it work with just one ?? Thanks

Answer: 

It might work, but it also might slip from side to side, not staying straight because there is nothing holding it in place other than the one bolt. Some Phoenix brakes had only one bolt, but they had tabs that held them straight within the deck. The best advice is to buy the right brake for your deck.

Ask ScooterDad: I have a mgp vx5 extreme complete. It has oversised bars and i want to change go stamdad Apex bol bars. Will it fit/work? If not what do i do?

Answer: 

Apex Bol bars come in standard or oversized, so you can stay with oversized bars. If you want to go to standard diameter bars, you'll have to change your compression system from HIC to SCS or IHC.
