That would be me... You're completely correct, timcupery, that full bikes sell for significantly
less than the sum of their parts, all things being equal. The last phrase of the previous sentence is the significant one though...
Good photography, good description, and good seller feedback all have strong effects on the price. A well displayed bike from a known seller will bring more than the sum of the parts if the parts are poorly displayed by a seller with little feedback.
So far as the OP's question, I'd say don't sell as a gruppo - you'll get more by selling the individual parts.
