    Illogical desire to wear pink

    I am in a bit of a predicament. I am in need of a Telekom jersey. Okay, maybe not need, but I am in want of a Telekom jersey. The problem is, I cannot for the life of me find a place that sells them, on or off line. Any suggestions?

    A long time ago, on another forum, I think, someone posted a link to a/the Team Telekom website. If I recall correctly, they sold jerseys and stuff from the site, but unfortunately, I can't find that either. Does anyone else know about this.

    Any help you could provide would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You might talk to Badger about that. It seems to me about a year ago he was looking for one too. Don't know if he ever found one but if he did he might know where to get another.

    Wanting to wear pink is not illogical, because 1) Telekom is a great team; and 2) I read somewhere that bright pink is a very visible, and therefore reasonably safe, colour. Best wishes for a successful jersey quest.

    If you can find one, let me know. I want to ride through Ipswich (the redneck capital of the world) wearing pink. It would be the ultimate achievement of my life (after it, there may be no more life )

    You can try www.pavan.com, they are the authorized pinarello dealer here in Toronto, and I am very sure that I have seen a Telecom jersey hanging in their display window, their previouse website was www.northspeed.com, I think they aalso sell on line

    Okay, nevermind. I'm officially stupid.

    Through all my fruitless searches for "Telekom," "Telekom jersey," "Telekom Ullrich (or Zabel, or whoever)," and a bunch of other stuff, I neglected to try perhaps the most obvious choice, "Team Telekom."

    Searching for "Team Telekom" gives links to both the Team Telekom website (www.team-telekom.de) and the fanshop (fanshop.t-mall.de). They appear to sell all sorts of cool Telekom stuff, but I'm not really sure, because it's all in German. I don't speak German. There is an ordering guide for stupid Americans, so maybe that will help.

    In anycase, there's where a person could buy a Telekom jersey, if a person were so inclined. It figures that I found it all by myself, but not until 30 seconds after I asked for help. Karma has a funny way of screwing with me like that.

    At the very least, I can take solace in the fact that a very nice and completely unrelated conversation has somehow started in this thread.

    To buy a Telekon jersey, check out Jan Ullrich's fan shop. They're asking 36 Euros, which is actually a pretty good deal...

    If you still can't get hold of one Lightboy, drop me a line with your size and I'll send you one. They are virtually in every blinking shop over here, funnily enough.
    If you want spectacular results, you have to know how to treat your bike badly.

    http://www.telekom.de/angebot/fanshop/

    is the place..
    Why did it only take me 2 clicks to find it?
    Used www.telekom.de and voila clicked on fanshop.. if you need help email me espi @ dds.nl

    If it wasn't that I have stated to never wear advertisement jerseys and pay for it as well, I'd be tempted to wear one. Jan Ullrich and Erik Zabel are my heroes.. they are both very sympathetic and absolutely brilliant cyclists..
    I've got a soft spot for Ullrich because of his dieting woes !

    Perhaps I should get one.. will annoy all those dutch who insist on wearing Rabobank jerseys... actually I have a vested interest in Rabobank and think our Michael Boogerd and Erik Dekker are great cyclists as well!

    Ivana, who's not as nationalistic as many of her fellow Dutchmen and we are far far far far less nationalistic than the Usonians or even Canadians.. but if I had to choose for another country it would be Canada.. love that flag!

    Lightboy,

    Not sure about the jerseys but www.probikekit.com is selling
    telekom Roubaix bib knickers for the ridiculously low price of
    $21.15 thats almost giving them away.
    For a real challenge try finding CSC teamwear. I work for
    CSC and can't find it......
    http://world.altavista.com/ is good for translating from
    German to english etc. after you get in just enter the telekom
    page and it will translate for you. (sometimes the translations
    are really funny)

    good luck,
    Marty

    I couldn't find any Telekom jerseys on probikekit (only had a quick browse though) but if you're after a slightly more subtle shade of pink they've got last years ONCE pinks.

    From another thread:

    "You would like to perhaps do something outrageous or anything that will give you the chance to be recognised as someone special.. This desire has now almost become an obsession and in your own way you are trying to fulfil this "complex" by ensuring you are the centre of attention, both at work or play ... "

    If we learn from our mistakes, I must be a goddamn genius.
