I would say: Queue-WAX!!!
Thanks, Forrestunifreak, for finding an earlier thread on the topic…I thought this was such an esoteric topic that I didn’t even search and should have. However, it seems in the earlier thread that no one really knows how to pronounce it. I would think that udc would have the corner on the pronunciation, but Redhead said:
“Unicycle . com said Q.X”
As in “cue-ex”? (Fed-Ex?) Hmmm, that seems unusual. Anyway, when I hear from the company themselves, I will post the response. If anyone is at Uniconn with them, please ask the Qu-Ax people how to say their name!!
Well, that’s hardly fair.
4 for cue-axe
minus one from kooh-axe for unsportmanlike conduct.
Cue-Axe is in the lead 4 to 3
p.s. I’ve got another one, that’s not worth a whole thread. How do you pronounce MUni is it
Sorry just realized that I put a stupidly ambiguous sound in there.
I didn’t mean m-oh-knee as in (oh, that’s not what I shoulda put), I meant:
m-ooh-knee ( as in, ooh…aah)
As far as i know its Qu-Ax is pronounced like quacks(like the duck) and not cue axe or somthing else. The reason for that is, that the dog Egon(founder/owner of Qu-Ax) had was called like this. That’s what i’ve heard.
And I pronounce MUni like m-you-nee
A-HA!!! The answer! The answer we’ve all been waiting for, straight from Qu-ax as to how to pronounce their name!!!
I had sent an email to email@example.com that read like this:
I asked a question on unicyclist.com about how to pronounce the name of your company. Many people had many different opinions!!
Could you please spell out the pronunciation of “Qu-ax”? Is it listed below?
Or is it something else? All of the unicycling community awaits your answer! Please respond immediately. :)[/B]
And here’s the response I just received:
you can pronounce as you want, we understand you.
English would be the first version , the Germans prefer the last one.
Importand would be , that you like our unicycles.
So the English version is “Cue-Aks” and the Germans say “Kwaks”.
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the mystery is solved!! Now go buy those quacking unicycles!!
Well that took all the fun out of it
Haha, just joking, I suppose it makes sense that different nationalities would pronounce it differently.
So it is cue axe, since I speak English. Also note that kooh acks was not mentioned.
I can’t see how anyone could read "qu-ax’’ as anything but cue ax or or kwacks. Not even kwacks, because there is dash in the middle separating the two syllables.
i say it Qu-Ax…as in Co-Axe
