    What is NOS and POS?

    I read lots of posts here and everyone talks about POS and NOS parts and bikes. What are you talking about?

    NOS = "new old stock"
    POS = "piece of sh!@"

    Both could mean a lot of other things but without a way to put them in context, my guess is as good as the next.

    That's the way I understand them!

    Agreed. "New Old Stock" should mean old stock which is in original packaging and has never been used. This of course is not always the case.

    POS could also be "point of sale" but I doubt that'd be referenced here.
