They try to say 'carbon fiber' and it sounds like 'plastic'.

How do you pronounce Omega hubs? Not like the Greek letter?

Ciocc = sigh-ock

And this was from a local bike flipper, I had to ask to see the bike to know what he was describing. He refused to believe how it was pronounced until I linked him to the video on YouTube.

I thought the 'Ci' was a hard sound like the 'ch' in church? More chi-ock than sigh-ock.
