Two places... try your local Trek dealer. They "should" charge you retail, not the jacked up hype e-tail that is being charged on ebay.

The other place is ebay... but from what I was told today, Trek is going to start searching ebay for these listings because they don't want any of their brands being sold via mail order unless it is through a legit mail-order dealer. So they are going to start cracking down on bike shops selling on ebay. (From what I was told.) They may even start (or at least threaten) to yank dealer licenses from shops who sell on ebay.

Also be aware that most if not all shops will be sold out. Trek had produced small quantities on the 1st run (Early Aug). We got ours on Friday afternoon and by Saturday all of the jerseys and most of the shorts were gone.

Trek has yet to ship any of the second round and the last update said not to expect anything until early October. If you really have to have one you'd be wise to try and special order through a good shop.

Do a search for 'cycling' and the retro jersey is listed there. I bought one because I thought it was a really cool look. I wore it twice and the dang stitching started pulling out. The thing was falling apart. This is by far the most I've ever spent on a jersey and the quality was poor.

Looks like Nike is selling it, along with replica Tour jerseys, for $100. For that price, I expect Lance to hand deliver it to my door, and then accompany me on a ride around the block. What a scam.

it was an extravagant purchase. Like I said, waaay more than I've ever paid for a jersey...But I sent it back because the stitching was falling apart. I agree that it's highway robbery, but I fell for it.

I got mine from Richmond Cycles. They are a shop in the United Kingdom, and they had the bibs and the jerseys. Good service, I had a problem with the size. I e-mailed them before I returned the bibs and they held the size I needed. With the limited supply, I thought that was above and beyond what most shops would have done.
are you in the UK?gregario

On their website it says they do not deliver outside the UK.

I am in South Georgia. Send them a e-mail, even with the time difference they will respond pretty quick.
