Evening all, I'm about to start undressing my Dyna-Tech and intend to sell the very tidy Shimano 1055 components (except hubs and cassette). Given that there are guys out there with far more bike bits sales experience than me do you think I should list the items individually or as a collective?

Cheers, Martin

here everyone does it like

"crankset x
brakes y
derailleur-front z1
derailleur-rear z2

if you buy the whole set:
(x+y+z1+z2)*0,9 or something like that : D

So list individual prices for each component and give a fair discount or free postage if one's willing to buy the whole groupset. It1s likely that lot of people will inquire about specific parts anyway as most people are just after small bits generally. The "missing parts of their sets"..:?

As a rule, you'll never get as much selling everything in one go, but you do save in hassle, and won't be left with a stray front derailleur or something...
