Do HIC bars fit IHC?
Answer: You can’t run HIC with standard diameter bars. However, IHC is a lot like HIC for standard diameter bars. You’ll need a tapered IHC fork to do this.
How does a SCS clamp work?
Scooter Compression System/SCS (Standard Compression System) SCS is a system which combines the clamp and the compression system. The lower half of the SCS clamp is placed over the steerer tube on the fork. The lower part of the bar slides into the upper half of the clamp (as seen in the picture).
