Ask ScooterDad: I have an ethic legion fork and I am trying to run hic which I think is the right compression to use anyway I was wondering if you can run hic without a shim because if I used a shim my bars wouldn't fit.

Answer: 

If your bars won't fit with the HIC shim, then you have standard sized bars or possibly aluminum bars. Either way, you can't run HIC without the shim and you need oversized bars to run HIC.
