Answer: 

If you currently have IHC with an IHC fork, standard diameter bars, and a standard diameter clamp, to convert that to HIC, you need to replace the fork, the bars, and the clamp. IHC is like baby HIC, which uses a standard threadless fork (not a tapered IHC fork), oversized bars, and an oversized clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: I had a 115 complete sacrifice and brought a max peters deck it all fits fine but i want new bars what do i need i have ihc compression but what type of bars work and what would i need to make it work

Answer: 

IHC requires an IHC work (tapered fork) with an IHC shim (included with the IHC fork) and standard diameter bars with a slit cut in them. You'll also need a standard diameter clamp (not SCS) to hold the bars on to the IHC fork.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi kenny, I have something ( I'm pretty sure it's a twig or seed pod) rattling around in my deck. Any idea what to do?

Answer: 

Try removing your wheel and your brake and see if it falls out of the extrusion to the rear. If that doesn't work, remove everything (including headset) and try using a hose to spray it out.

Ask ScooterDad: Hi kenny, I am looking into buying a Proto SCS clamp and was wondering if my parts were compatible with it. I have a district DK2 deck, FK2 fork, District integrated headset, and Al2 bars. Thanks Calcin

Answer: 

The FK2 fork is an ICS fork, so there is no starnut. You could convert it by cutting off the top of the fork and installing a starnut, but I'd recommend just picking a different fork. In my personal experience, District FK2 forks aren't that strong either. Also, you should know that 1) you'll need a fullsize SCS (not baby SCS) if you want to use aluminum bars with it and 2) sometimes, aluminum bars don't fit perfectly in SCS clamps and you may need to make a small shim out of a popcan.

Answer: 

Personally, I'm a big fan of being unique and different. Just about every video has a falls section, so it seems really overdone and clicé to me to have a falls section. I would only incorporate falls into a video if the a fall is funny, significant, or if it shows progression toward landing a very difficult trick. For example, when my kid was learning flairs on resi at Woodward, we included several of his falls in fast-forward motion prior to landing the flair in his video. It showed progression and not giving up.

Generally speaking, get inspiration from videos that are not scooter videos. Look at skiing and snowboarding videos, motocross videos, anything other than scooter and skateboard videos for inspiration. The reason for that is everyone copies other scoot and skate videos. You want your videos to stand out, so do something different! :)

Ask ScooterDad: If i get envy thermal bars with a slit cut in them will they fit ihc fasen raven forks?

Answer: 

Yes, that should work. Thermal bars are standard diameter and IHC forks will work with standard diameter bars with a slit.
