HIC was basically the first compression system besides threaded. Its been around for a long time and for good reason. It works. All you need to run HIC is a threadless fork with a starnut, a threadless headset, the HIC shim, and oversized bars with a slit. HIC is hands down the simplest out of all three compressions to use. All you do is tighten your bolt to the starnut in your fork, put your bars on, and you're good to go. Its fairly strong and doesn't come loose often. If you're looking for something reliable, easy, and light, HIC is the ticket.
