    How do you pronounce it?

    I can't decide if it is supposed to be pronounced Jam-miss, or Jay-miss.. or some other way that I haven't thought of.

    How are you supposed to say it?

    That's why I have been confused. I hear it both ways by people who represent the brand... I think I'll email Jamis and try to find the official answer.

    Edit- Nevermind, just read their FAQ...

    How do you pronounce JAMIS?

    The phonetic spelling is [jay mus].

    It's the way I've always seen it; like "James", just a new, extra syllable on the end.

    Fits in with my buddies' way of pronouncing brands:

    AY-vid (Avid)
    MAY-vic (Mavic)

    It's always smart to choose a name for a company or product that will get people talking about it.
    Props to Jamis, Mavic, Avid, Marzoochi, Magura, etc...etc...!!!!
    I always like when people call SRAM >> SCRAM...........
