The prices are at Cross Country Cycle in Holland, MI.
Most shops will be in this range too.
Specialized gives an MSRP, but the dealers are allowed to sell at a % below and no lower than the set percentage.
I also don't get the pricing of the S-Works fully spec'ed, $8500. It seams like Specialized is overcharging about $1000 of what it would cost to build buying the frame only. Normally you would expect a fully spec'ed package to be below the cost of an individual build.
I am not sure about the change out of the cranks. You can use a different crank, but I would not. The Specialized crankset will work with shimano and SRAM and it is suppose to be very stiff and improve power transfer. Check it out before you dismiss the crankset.
Don't confuse the website pricing of Specialized bikes and gear. Almost every dealer will sell thier products below what the website will list. the S-works fully spec'ed will sell between $6999 and $7499.

It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better start running.
Supposedly there is an insert available to allow it to accept standard cranks/BB. But you'd likely add more weight than you could possibly save. The Specialized crankset is nice, and incredibly stiff. If the bike has it, its truely the way to go. My only complaint is that they don't offer a 135 BCD spider so one can use Campy chainrings.
