How do you pronounce Ksyrium

The title "says'" it all. Just how do you pronounce Ksyrium?

Anything relating to bikes that is not pronounced "steel" or "steal" will usually cost you a bunch of money.

totally agree on that anything that doesn't spell "steel" will be costly

I don't want to start anything, but I haven't seen a top notch steel frame with fork for under $2000. Why do so many refer to steel stuff as inexpensive? I can buy a complete Trek-of-the-day carbon bike for just what the frame of a good high quality steel frame and fork cost.
