+## Latency Spin Bit {#spin-bit}
+The latency spin bit enables passive latency monitoring from observation points
+on the network path throughout the duration of a connection. The spin bit is
+only present in the short packet header, since it is possible to measure the

+will appear after version negotiation and connection establishment are
+completed. On-path measurement and use of the Latency Spin Bit is further
+discussed in {{QUIC-MANAGEABILITY}}.
+The spin bit utilizes a single bit in the first byte of the short header. The
