Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

headset measuring?

When measuring for a new headset, do I measure the diamiter from the frame or from my existing headset?
Looking at getting a Chris King and they have three different sizes ...

Thanks,

your welcome,
But to helpful, you get the biggest size, and then use a headset press to squeeze it in.
Buy a spare headset, too.
