    Do we need a bike brand pronunciation thread/link in resource thread?

    I notice a lot of people just getting into bikes tend to mispronounce names of bike brands, especially a lot of the older Italian and French stuff, I know I still do it with stuff I'm not familiar with. I would like to make this a thread where people can add pronunciations, or people can ask how to pronounce names without fear of feeling dumb. What does everyone think?
