    Pronounciation

    Marzocchi - Mar Zotch Ee

    Shimano - Shih Man Oh

    Don't care if it's wrong, it sounds "right" to me.

    Any others?

    You've all got it wrong.


    Bontrager - "Bon Tra sh er"
    Marzochi - "Mar Zzz Och Iee"
    Shimano - "Sh Iee Maa No"

    Oh and for the word Lever its "lee ver" god dammit!! NOT "Lev err"

    For crying out loud, just call these manufacturers up and see what they say when they answer the phone.
    Then you will cease sounding like a n00b when you say their names.

    "Hello, Mar-zoh-key?"

    But then you'll sound like a n00b again when you don't answer into the phone because you don't know what to say.

    Actually, it's red tank top and I think those 'swords' are just PVC pipe - - "Stand back, or I'll pummel you with plastic!"

    I still hear some folks call sram s-ram, like s and ram are 2 different words
    for the creation was subjected to futility,not willingly , but because of Him who subjected it in hope...that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:20-29
