Not Tchibo but maybe eBay

I got a form letter back from Tchibo: 'Aufgrund der großen Nachfrage ist das attraktive Angebot bereits vergriffen, aus diesem Grund können wir Ihnen das angeforderte Holland Fahrrad leider nicht mehr zusenden.' (The bikes have sold out because demand was high.) Well, what did I expect!

Perhaps the bike would not have suited me anyway and I have decided to go and sit on a few bikes in a bike shop before I buy, probably through eBay.

What a shame - I received a bike just like that on my 10th birthday.Needless to say I was acutely embarrassed to be seen riding it in front of my friends, in fact, I could hardly ride it it was too big for me. My younger brother by 3 years had received 2 weeks earlier a brand new chrome state-of-the-art model for his birthday. I felt crushed!

Yes, I don't think you ever forget your first bike. My sister and I each got one for Christmas one year ... mine was painted blue and hers red (they were both second hand). Finally we realised why Dad's workshop had been locked for several weeks.
