Answer: 

It sounds like your clamp is too big or you don't have a slit in your bars.

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: 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.

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.

Ask ScooterDad: If i want to ride envy reapers would they fit HIC if they had a slit?

Answer: 

Reaper bars will not work with HIC because they are not oversized internally. They will work with SCS (fullsize, not baby), IHC, or ICS.

Ask ScooterDad: what kind of clamp do u use with HIC

Answer: 

HIC requires oversized bars, so any oversized clamp would work.
