the trditional way with the old cast/forged aluminum ones was center of quill bolt to center od clamp along the top of the extension. There were exceptions to this even, with Nitto being one. The newer TIG guill stuff and all threadless types are measured along the SIDE of the extension fron the center of the quill or steerer clamp to the center of the bar clamp.
