The linked-to question about a craigslist bike doesn't address the narrow question as asked. The question seemed to me to be directed towards valuing frames and components and comparing used bikes across brands and quality-levels. The linked question includes answers about how to avoid stolen bikes and how to sanity check a bike - stand-over, strange noises etc.
I wonder if we should rethink the closure or find a better already-answered question to link.
FWIW I don't think the asker had done enough leg work to be taken seriously but I do think the question has value that a) stands on its own and b) can benefit from current answers especially when discussing groupos across brands and other recent evolutions like 11 speed cassettes etc.
