Answer: 

Yes, you can install a threadless fork, but you'll also have to replace the headset with a threadless headset and use some kind of compression. Depending on what compression you go with will determine what kind of clamp and bars you can use. So, yes, you can do it, but it's a lot more involved than just replacing the fork.

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: 

Between the Fuzion Z300 and the Razor Pro XXX, while they are both good scooters, I would definitley go with the Fuzion Z300, which has a threadless integrated headset, flex brake, and HIC compression. While the Razor is good too, between these two specific models, the Fuzion wins out.

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: i am getting an ethic artefact deck and lucky voodoo bars. Will they be compatible with HIC forks?

Answer: 

Typically, as long as your forks aren't meant for IHC or ICS and they are threadless, they should work with HIC. Fork length and headtube length is sometimes an issue though.

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.
