I am building up a new lugged steel frameset and need a source for a polished silver / chrome
handlebar, stem and seat post. Deda makes Quattro stem and Speciale handlebar and Metal stick post, but can't find them. QBP,Hawley or J&B don't have them.

I've used Nitto before, inc the lugged threadless stem, and may have to go back to them. I'd prefer all three to be the same brand.

Thanks in advance,

Who's building your frame? If you go threadless, a color matching stem might not be a bad idea...There is a lugged stem kit availible to builders( bikelugs.com used to sell it)

It simplifies the bar options.. Here is mine.. I bought standard anodized black bars and stripped/polished the center section only. Underneath the tape is black anodizing.. Stripping and polishing took about an hour...I sprayed Easy Off on the bars and polished with metal polish. 2 years later they still look great.

If you don't want to go this option, Nitto is hard to beat for quality

here are pics of both options
