    I can't type phonetically, but it's like spam with an r instead of a p.

    It is. It's a German company, and that's the way everyone here says it, including bike shop employees.

    EDIT: Apparently, I was misinformed.

    SRAM is pronounded SHRAM, one syabble, kind of like that missing p in Clemson.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
