    " I got them Maveric rims on Ohmega hubs."

    Do you know anyone who consistently mispronounces product names ?
    Which ones ?
    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

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

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

    Ahmegga?

    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.
    Always searching for Lotus literature and memorabilia for use at www.VintageLOTUSbicycles.com, can you help?

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