Is that pronounced as Skeming or as Shemming?

If you're searching for Schwinns in the ads you'd need to include all variations of the spelling. Kind of like searching for a Sportster, you need to include Sporster, Spotster, Sprotster...

Do you mean, "mis-spell"?

You know you have truly arrived when you have a Shwimm bike next to a shiny new Cataract Eldorado in your garage.
