They're on ebay all the time. Check frequently and I'm positive you'll find one.

You can order one from Henrik Haak at http://www.puzzle-shop.de if you don't mind the shipping cost.

A response from Ton may be a bit difficult for a few days as well, seeing as how he is going to be in the US for the July 10th US nationals in Pasadena, California.

Thanks everyone - I've just laid my hands on both a cube-21 and a super cubix. The super cubix has an incredible build quality and mechanism compared to the new cube-21, but i am very happy with both.

It's been mentioned on the Yahoo speedsolving message board that "recent" Cube-21s have been incorrectly assembled. Perhaps that's the problem with yours. Under the Cube-21 logo-plate are a screw, a washer and a spring: the washer needs to be between the plastic and the spring (not between the screwhead and the spring). If the washer isn't in the right place, the spring will eventually chew through the plastic.

Jaap reminded me of this problem after I bought a creaky sample at DCD; it had, indeed, been wrongly assembled. The layers still turned poorly after making the correction, but the puzzle has been fine since cleaning off the greyish grease inside and re-lubricating with silicone...
