I wouldn't mind swapping out my entire groupset as I convert from a triple/eight speed setup to a double/ten speed setup. Where do you suggest shopping online for complete groupsets? Nashbar, REI, Jenson, EMS, etc. don't seem to carry complete sets. Suggestions please.

I've ordered from Pro Bike Kit (UK) a few times (have a pair of pedals on their way as we speak) and have been happy with the service and price. They've got a complete 105 groupset right now for $555 with free S+H.
It's not difficult to buy a groupo from the US. You've been given several of possible sources, like Lickton's and Texas Cyclesport.
I gave you one good one in the UK (Shiny Bikes). You might also check out Ribble, but I don't think that their current prices are as good. I wouldn't recommend a company I hadn't tried personally. I've order from all those mentioned.
It would help if you knew what brand and model you want.
