Because not everybody does know what an m900 crankset looks like, that's the problem.
Well I would think that if you are building a bike up you would have a very strong vision of what you want it to look like and what parts you want on it. Do folk use a 'scattergun approach' when building a bike these days?
I tend to think that someone starting a build will decide early on just what parts to look for and then hunt them down. You don't tend to just browse around and say 'oh, theres some cranks, they will do' unless its a hack that you just want to throw together, and if that is the case its unlikely that you would be putting mint M900 XTR on it.
And mint should be mint. No mechanical or cosmetic defects.
In 4-5 years of buying parts on this site only once have I been dissapointed with the condition of a purchased part. Considering the volume of parts I buy on here I think that speaks volumes about the standards here on RB.
