    Front Fork Measurement

    If I am measuring the front fork width do I measure from the outside or inside of the dropouts?

    Sorry for the stupid/obvious question.

    inside of the dropout faces, because that is where the locknuts of the hub sit and it is that measurement that is the width of a hub.
