I have not seen colored stems/ and/or caps. I am sure they are out there because many of you have sid so. My favorite stem is no longer available and according to the children at the LBS never existed. the never existed because they never saw them. I speak of the Hutchinson tubes for Shrader valves. Hutchinson made Shrader valved tube with metal threaded stems. I really miss these. the threaded stem like the threaded Presta stems allowed a positive location of the stem in the rim.
