What size bars should I be riding?
All freestyle scooters come with one-piece fixed bars. The height and width of your bars is a personal preference, but if you are new to the sport, it is recommended that the crossbar should sit just above your waist. This is a comfortable height for most people. The width of your bars should be about 10 to 20cm wider than your shoulder width, again depending on whether you want your bars to feel narrow or feel wide.
How does your bar-cutting service work?
We offer a free bar-cutting service so that you can buy the bars you want and have them cut down before we send them to you. Please put exact details/measurements in the message otherwise we will call you once we have your order.
What is the difference between “standard” bars and “HIC/Oversized” bars?
Bars are made out of either chromolly or aluminium. Chromolly Bars come in two downtube external diameters – standard (31.8mm) and oversized/HIC (34.9mm). The standard bars work with standard clamp, HIC compression, SCS compression clamps and ICS compression. Oversized/HIC bars will work with HIC Compression, oversize clamps, and most SCS compression clamps. Aluminium bars are manufactured with a thicker wall than chromolly bars, so they have a standard internal diameter, but an oversized external diameter. This means they work with oversized clmaps, ICS, HIC and most SCS compression clamps. Aluminium bars cannot work with HIC compression.
Will any grips fit on my bars?
All grips will fit onto any handlebar. The only parts that might not fit are the bar ends. If you have chromolly bars, then all standard bar ends will fit on these. If you have aluminium bars, the bar ends from most grips will not fit in. You will need to purchase bar ends specifically made for aluminium bars.
Do I need a slit in my bars?
The slit in the bottom of bars is designed to allow clamps to fully tighten the bars onto the forks. Your bars will need a slit in them if you run HIC, ICS, threaded, or iHIC compression. If you run SCS compression, you will need to remove the slit from your bars. Most bars designed for use with SCS come without a slit.
