Best Place For Anodized MTB Accessories

Sorry for such a lame first post but just about all of my other questions were answered by lurking/searching/reading.

I am looking to add a personal touch to my GF while sheding a little weight.
Who is the best supplier of anodized aluminum (or mag) accessories. Items such as skewers, pedals, seat post & clamps, neck, bottle holders, etc.
My internet searches have resulted in a mismatched color for some of these items. I am hoping that "one" reputable company produces most of these items so that I can get the same color. My searches often bring me to import race car products.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RK

Ebay.

Colors do vary and not many places put out color anodized parts any more. Tektro makes/made a lot of anodized stuff, so does Kalloy. They don't seem to be available anywhere except a couple places on ebay that stock a bunch of their stuff. The ebay store Chasertech has a bunch of colored stuff. No one really does it much anymore except for the obvious nearly custom stuff like chris king hubs.
