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: I have threaded compression that comes stock on the Grit Fluxx, what parts do I need to change to go to SCS compression?

Answer: 

It looks like the newer Grit Fluxx scooters come with mini-HIC and threadless headsets, so I'll assume you have the older one that still has a threaded headset.

To convert your Grit Fluxx with threaded headset and forks to SCS, you'd need: a threadless headset with bearing cups, a threadless fork (not for IHC or ICS), an SCS clamp, and you'd need to cut the slit off your bars.

Ask ScooterDad: my cousin has a madd gear vx2 pro and he would like to know if he can put grit invader bars on it without changing anything else.

Answer: 

Grit Invader bars are standard diameter bars, so they should work on a threaded fork like those on the Madd Gear VX2 Pro. However, the Invader bars do not come with a slit cut in them, so you'd need to cut one in order for the clamp to work.

Ask ScooterDad: Why are my girls Razor Pro XXX scooters slower than my Grit Tremor? Bearings?

Answer: 

Bearings could be a factor, but it's more likely the durometer of the wheels. That is, the hardness of the urethane determines how fast a wheel is. Harder wheels are faster, but less sticky. Another factor could be precision in machining. If the tolerances on the Grit are more accurate, then everything will fit better and there will be less resistance to smooth rolling. If the fork and wheel hubs are poorly machined, then it can impact how freely the bearings can spin.

Ask ScooterDad: i recently purchased a grit tremor and within weeks the bars started to wobble, is there any way to fix this without limiting how fast my deck can spin

Answer: 

You need to tighten your compression, which is something that you need to do for regular maintenance on your scooter. There is a fine balance between your compression being tight enough to hold your HIC shim snug and loose enough to allow for your headset to spin. Remember that the weight of your bars will make your headset feel more loose when they are on, so tighten your HIC shim a little more than you think it should be. New scooters, or rebuild scooters, will often loosen up since all the parts need to break in and seat properly after some use. What you're experiencing is very normal.

Ask ScooterDad: Whats the difference between a " Grit CX I Series and a Atom pro scooter. Is there any model close to the Grit CX I but more affordable?

Grit Atom: http://www.gritscootersusa.com/collections/pro-scooters/products/grit-at...

Grit CX I: http://www.gritscootersusa.com/collections/pro-scooters/products/grit-cx...

The Atom has plastic core 100mm wheels instead of metal core 110mm wheels on the CX I. The Atom has a threaded headset while the CX I has a threadless headset with HIC compression. The CX I has stronger bars. The CX I is definitely a step up from the Atom. The CX I would be a better platform for adding upgraded parts later.
