Threaded

Ask ScooterDad: Hey, I just got back into scooters, and I bought a Razor Pro XX, bars were too short, so I got some new bars. But they didn't come with a slit in them, do I need to cut a slit in them to be able to get them to clamp?

Answer: 

Yes, you'll need to cut a slit in the bars. Threaded forks and threadless systems require a slit in standard diameter bars and a standard diameter clamp.

Ask ScooterDad: does the Madd Gears VX1 JAM Scooter have a hic fork

Answer: 

No, that scooter has a threaded fork and threaded headset. You would need a threadless fork and threadless headset, plus oversized bars and oversized clamp, in order to run HIC.

Answer: 

There are standard bars and oversized bars. Additionally, there are steel bars (standard or oversized) and aluminum bars (standard inner diameter, oversized outer diameter). The type of bars you use will be determined by the type of compression you want to use and vice versa. Standard bars work with threaded compression, IHC, ICS, and small SCS (or fullsized SCS with shim). Oversized bars work with fullsized SCS and HIC. Aluminum bars work with ICS and fullsized SCS.

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: Hello, I have a non integrated scooter but want a new integrated deck and headset. Is there anything else that I need?

Answer: 

If your current scooter already has a threadless fork and some kind of compression other than threaded, then you should be able to move everything over to the new deck and headset. Some decks and forks, however, don't fit well together if the fork is long and the headtube is short. You may need to cut the fork or use headset spacers.
