Question about acquiring components
I've been contemplating acquiring some components piecemeal to build up a LHT or Cross Check at some point in the future. I keep an eye on craigslist and on various sales here and there and have a question for the esteemed forum.
I have found a set of ultegra 6600 components for sale on CL with "under 300 miles" on them. They are currently not attached to a bike, and look to be a fair price. The sale is for brifters, front and rear derailleurs, and front and rear brakes.
What kinds of things should I look for in the components to verify the condition? The seller is not stating they are brand new, except one part. Any tips are appreciated.
