I think stainless steel is an oxymoron.

Why we can't have exhausts covered in that toxic heavy metal chromium, I just don't know /s

From what I remember of chrome it got pitted and the steel underneath went rusty, give me SS any time.

I think slidy bit of forks is probably hard chromed, I remember too many car bumpers that went rusty.
