    Which is the correct way to pronounce RS Pike?

    like.. pipe but instead of the "pe" sound at the end, replace it with "ke"?
    just curious

    I think it was meant to be pronouced like the pike in "turnpike"

    I suppose some people would pronounce it like pikey as in the movie Snatch... but turnpike makes more sense
