"I.S.I.S." or "Isis"

Post by _Ground_Zero » Mon, 07 Jul 2008 11:31:58

I don't really think they'll care or smirk if you say it wrongfully, my
LBS understood me when they asked what hub/crank style my uni had and I
replied eye-sis so I'd just say you'd be fine going with eye-sis as
well.

I worked at a bike shop for a few years. Just say Isis as one word.
Saying out each letter is tedious and makes you look kind of silly.

Hmmmm, that's a lot of information but nothing on the question at hand,
i.e. pronunciation. From browsing the document, I also don't think that
the so-called ISIS interface on (non-giraffe) unicycles conforms fully
to the ISIS standard, because it assume a bottom bracket where they
talk about spindle length. So maybe for unicycles we should rename the
interface to *eye-sis*. :-)

Evey biker and bike shop worker I've ever met pronounces it Isis, like
the river.

ISIS sucks anyway since its not a standard at all. There is no guarantee
of compatibility whatsovever. The manufacturers took care of this, the
ISIS organization does not care, customers loose. You could sell a
square tapered hub as ISIS and get away with it...

So I pronounce it ISUCKS. :mad:

That's what I thought as well. But according to one of the major
unicycle shops its not just Koxx. There are even issues between Qu-ax
and KH. Unfortunately all the manufacturers are keeping quiet on this
issue or don't know themselves, so it is hard to get any reliable
facts.

Sorry if this was a little off-topic, but it is related to ISIS as a
"protected" name. Since they have probably lost all legal rights by now
you can it whatever you want. :o

I have a Qu-Ax 36er with the 48h isis hub and it fits my kh cranks just
fine.

Ok, basically the ISIS problem is that the specification is not quite
strict enough. As a result, two different spline configurations can
both match the standard, but not be compatible.
