There are fantastic deals to be found used or OEM take-offs. However you really need to A. know what you are looking at,  B. do your research regarding value thoroughly and C. not be in a hurry. Few are willing to do this. To illustrate, I plan to purchase "new" brakes prior to a bike trip at the end of the summer. I know exactly what I want and what the average prices are across the internet. I have had several come available, but I know I can do better on price and I am not worried about set up as I can do it myself. As noted, I am in no real hurry. I believe the same approach can be employed on entire bikes as well, but it requires more time, eye for detail and willingness to accept issues that may arise.
