I have a group of friends that would like to purchase DA 9000, I'm looking for a place in the U.S.A that can accomodate a large order, with emphasis on very competitive pricing.

Margins on Shimano is small. On 9070, the margin is pathetic. If you really want a low price on that stuff, you have to look elsewhere.
I hate to even point this out, since it's anti-LBS, but 97% of the guys on these boards already know this. Buy from the UK. Wiggle, ChainReaction, ProBikeKit, etc. They have a way of evading duty taxes on all of it, as long as it's not being sold to someone in the UK. It's really annoying. Often cheaper than US wholesale.

Merlin cycles in the UK has the complete group for $1,700 and shipping is free to the USA. Might not arrive in the original boxes but they will be brand new. I have had great experiences buying from them and find them reliable plus they respond to emails fairly quickly.
