Recommended Posts

There are a few brand names where I either don't know if I'm pronouncing it correctly or the manufacturers don't know how to spell.

 

One is Ciocc. I read now it is pronouncec "church" http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/road/product/extro-lc-10-39378

 

Others are Cervélo. Is it "sirvello" or "sirvaylo"

 

Principia = PrinSIpia or PrinsiPIA

 

People get Sram wrong aswell. It is not Shram or Es-ram but just Sram as in pram.

Another important one is Shimano..... pronounced as it is written SHI-MANO ...... not the derogatory way ignorant kempekkernoglia users insist on.

Both you and that Moegoe character are looking for very big trouble.... Moegoe is using the evertar of Momparra and you are using Mud Dee's evertar. They are both fun loving guys and old and respected Hubbers. I have to warn you both for the final time to stop with this uncalled for prctices as I cannot warrant their reaction when they find out what you newbies are doing!!!!!!!!!!

My request for a eS RAM RD at Solomons drew a blank - where that comes from is my digital electrons heritage lol

 

First there was RAM (Random Acccess Memory) then S RAM came along (Static Random Access Memory) - old habits die hard esp. when you grow old. After a few u toobs I got the right lingo for the cycling brand - shram

Dedacciai: De-da-chear

 

Ciocc: Ch-ioch

 

Bianchi: Be-oung-ki - not Be-an-chi (FFS - this one cheeses me off)

 

Other brands:

 

Lancia: Lunch-ia, not Lans-ia

 

Alfa Romeo: Alfa Rom-ay-o, not Alfa Rome-e-oh (another one that grates my carrot)

 

And then..the worst of the worst: Espresso: E-spres-so, not Ex-presso (This one sends me through the roof, petty yes, but get it right FFS! AAAAARRRGGHHHH)
