Feebay question: Sell as group or individually?

I need to sell my compact double group to purchase a triple group.

Its a mix of tiagra and sora 9 speed with less than 50 miles on the group.

Would i be better off selling as a complete group or parting it out individually?

I'm not really crunched for time (though it would be nice to get my new ride up to enjoy over the summer) but am limited on my budget so i need either a straight trade or a good return.

Thanks!

Pictures of new ride to come.

Sora and Tiagra will have limited returns regardless of how you sell it. I've always made more selling individualy but I'm usually selling Record or Dura Ace.

yeah, im not a fan of cheap shimano. The casseroll they came on is wonderful though. Maybe it would be better to buy a donor bike and switch them over?

+1 Put them on a donor bike and sell it.

Otherwise, sell individually. Sora derailleurs will not get much at all. Compact crank should do fine, as will the shifters.

You're looking at $10-20 per derailleur and maybe $100 for set of ergo shifters. Meh, donor bike it up.
