Everyone will have their preference. If you're looking at someone else's setup sheet, you will have to know how THEY measure droop. If it's .5mm in the rear, I would assume they are using the bottom of the loop. I measure Uptravel from ride height myself. I only use the droop gage (under the loop FWIW) to verify that both sides are equal. On the front arms I use the area of the arm forward of the c-hub.
