Answer: 

I assume you mean the Sacrifice Bennis SCS bars. They are standard diameter, so they would work with IHC forks, although you would need to cut a slit in the bars and use a clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: Is there a possible way to make your scooter bars taller?

Answer: 

Unfortunately, no. You could use an SCS, which would raise your bars 1.5-2 inches, but you'd have to cut off the slit, so you'd end up losing about the same amount you'd gain.

Answer: 

Headsets are one standard sized, regardless of bar size (oversized or standard), so you don't need to worry about buying an "oversized" headset. Just buy a regular integrated, threadless headset. (All integrated headsets should be threadless.)

Answer: 

It's all a matter of personal preference. Some people prefer taller bars (typically street riders) and some prefer shorter bars (typically park riders), but it's all individual. Generally, your bars should be about waist-height when standing on your scooter with your knees slightly bent. Also, with your SCS, measure from the top to the ledge on the inside of the clamp to find out how much offset your SCS has. If it's 1.5", you'll need to cut your bars 1.5" shorter than if they were non-SCS. That is, the height of your bars should be the distance from the top of your headset to where you want them, minus the SCS offset, and make sure you don't have a slit in your bars.

Ask ScooterDad: Hey scooter dad I have hic compression but I want to switch to scs how do I do it do I just need to buy a scs clamp that can fit oversized bars

Answer: 

If you have oversized bars already and you don't want to buy new standard diameter bars, then you need to buy a full-size SCS that can work with oversized bars. The good news is that full-size SCS clamps usually come with a shim in case you ever want to switch to standard diameter bars. The only other thing you will need to do is cut the slit off your bars. You'll lose some bar height when you do this, but the SCS will raise them 1.5-2 inches, so it should be fine.

Answer: 

If you're changing the type of bars, then you'll need to make sure everything works together and upgrade any other parts necessary to make them compatible. For example, if you want to go from standard to oversized bars, you'll have to move to an oversized clamp with HIC or a fullsize SCS that can work with oversized bars.
