    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,
    Sometimes we are helpful.

    Sometimes we are funny.

    Sometimes both.

    But not always.

    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.
