Online Specialized Wholsale Shop?

If this is in the wrong section, apologies and feel free to move it mods.

I went to my LBS today to get some clipless shoes, and after some shopping decided that the Specialized Comp MTB was the best fit and deal for me (I liked the SIDI as well, but the price difference didn't justify it for me). Problem is, I liked the older (silver accent) model quite a bit more than the newer model, and my LBS could not order it in a 44. So, being that my LBS loyalty is out I might as well just find the rock bottom dollar deal.

Problem #2, I can't find any large dealer of Specialized online (other than specialized.com). I tried nashbar, performance, and REI with no luck.

They're cheap ($90) at Specialized.com, but I'd like to know who gives the best Specialized prices online anyway.

Thanks In Advance

Try http://www.bestwebbuys.com/bikes/index.cfm
or http://froogle.com
to search for best prices of any bike-related product.

Check Ebay as well.

Specialized does not really let people sell their products online. There is not alot of hope on finding a rock bottom deal. Think about calling dealers in the fall to see about sales. I got a pair of pro carbons at 40% off that way.

I didn't find anything via the two links above. Yeah, it looks like online Specialized purchases are tough to come by.

I guess my follow-up question is who are the largest Specialized dealers in the country? I figure i'll just make some calls and see if they'll ship. Specialized.com is now out of stock and I've called every LBS within 50 miles.
