    I have a pair of Penny and pair of Juliet. My Juliet is more close then my Penny. I often read the Penny is smallest one but for me the Juliet is more small. The nose bridge on Penny look good to me, not loose.

    I'm ok or my Penny need to change the nose bridge ?

    Penny is definitely the smallest of the x-metals. If i remember right, they were made for smaller heads and the XX were supposed to fill the niche for larger heads. I have owned them all and pennys were definitely smaller. Not 100% sure what you are asking about changing the nose bridge. Usually you just tighten them. You dont swap them out unless you are looking to make a custom pair.

    Penny has spring hinges while Juliet has normal hinges. That might account for the difference in fit you're experiencing. What size t-shox are in your Juliet?

    Temple shocks. The rubber in the temples of juliet, there is a number on it indicating size.

    The penny is smallest due to orbital size compared to Juliet. Assuming both has a tight nose bridge, the opening of the arm can be adjusted for Juliet depending on the temple shocks size while the penny is not since it is spring hinged.

    Personally, I find that even though the Penny is a smaller frame, they feel more loose because of the spring hinges. The X-Metals without spring hinges are more rigid for sure.
