That's really diappointing to hear that Glagow has it, but it will be months before we see it in the US. A couple of weeks ago I ordered a S Works SL4 frame and a DI2 9070 group. I thought it was going to be released soon in January, but now the earliest date I'm seeing on other forums is late Feb-March and possibly late April. I'm not sure I want to wait that long. I might change my order to the 9000 mechanical group. :(

Interesting that a shop in Glasgow seems to be the first to have all the parts of Di2 9070 in stock...now they are selling it at full SRP so £2.8k for fr & rr mech, fr & rr brakes, internal battery & charger, cassette, chain, cables, crank, bb & sti's.

They seem to have 3 of everything you need though...now can I find any spare change down the back of the sofa....

Highly unlikely to be through official channels so have fun when warranty is needed.

^^...that's what I did. Just purchased a Giant TCR Advanced SL1 with DA 9000.
I think it's way better than 7800. Awesome bike! With cages, pedals and Barfly, it comes in at 14lbs 14oz.
It should tide me over until the 9070 gets released for my Wilier.

Its already in the US

I ordered an Evo w/ 9070 it should arrive by the middle of next month at the latest. Availability of the group ala carte in the USA is probably a different story.

There is a big difference between availability of boxed set parts and complete Tier 1 manufacturers' complete bikes. Please understand the differentiation.

Cannondale is notorious for not being able to deliver when they say. Let us know when you get that EVO with 9070.

Performance bike shows di2 9070 availability on Jan 30th. I just ordered the RD-9070 and my estimated ship date is February 6th.

What about the other components like the battery, junction box, front and rear derailleur wiring kits?

Wiring kits will be the same as Ui2 won't they?

So, I am assuming the same junction box, front and rear derailleur wiring kits, and the exterior battery?

I am interested in the internal battery.

I am ordering a custom carbon frame with internal wiring and that uses the internal seatpost battery.

I think the only parts performance doesn't show from the new lineup is the internal battery and new front harness for internal battery charging.

first link is battery, second one is the charger for it. They have stock, I have a 3 port front junction box coming for a build I'm working on...
