    Maybe we just need a whole "How do you pronounce ..." sticky thread. For instance, in my mind I always thought it was "s-ram" (have no idea why I ever thought that), then the mechanic at my LBS says "shram" (and I have no idea if he's right).
    My God, I've created a monster!

    Where is Jamis from? For some reason I have the idea it's american, so I'd just say "Jam-iss"

    Okay - It sounds more like this: Jamis = Zzzhhhamis. With a soft A and emphasized I.

    Not to dig up a five year old thread or anything, but:
    How do you pronounce JAMIS?
    The phonetic spelling is [jay mus].

    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Anybody think of checking out the company vids from Interbike?

    It's Jay-miss. And Jeer-o.

    I go round and round with my bud; his pronunciation is godawful. He says "May-vick", Ay-vid", and won't touch Campagnolo. (Cam-pan-yo-low) Oh, and he does the S-RAM, too.

    Of course, we have fun with the brands and manufacturers we have to deal with -- Turdmaster, Dynacrap, Dumber (Roadmaster, Dynacraft, Dumar)....
