    Actually the first two amongst many.

    1. How do you pronounce Ksyrium?

    2. What does the "c" stand for in 700 x 28c?


    Cheers!

    Kuh -seer- ree- um, accent on the second syllable.

    The "C" is an old designation for the width of the tire and is also part of the French system of tire designations.

    A 700c x 23 tire is a 29 inch diameter, or 622mm diameter tire that is 23 mm in width.

    Sheldon Brown has answers to lots of questions; here's what he says about tires:
