Ask ScooterDad: MaddGear fixed handle bars...Can I really have the bar cut down? Spent some good money on this thing, but son insists bar is too high. I dont' have the tools, but do I just ask someone to lop a couple inches off? Help.

Yes, you can cut bars down, but there are a few things you need to know. First, if it has a slit in the bars, that slit needs to be recreated after cutting the bars shorter. The slit should be in the same spot and the same width and length. Second, if your bars have a starnut inside the bars, such as for ICS, it will need to be pushed further up into the bars equivalent to the amount you cut off.
