Berit and Carsten
For many years, we have experimented with holiday forms, which as many of our not necessarily cover-like needs as possible: Berit is mainly about having as much time to paint – and Carsten wants as many thousands of kilometers on the bike.
The first attempt to get on two touring bicycles and to be together for a few weeks (through Scotland …) missed. “Constantly driving” and “plenty of rest for painting”, in this case still combined with the weather, which is presented to Scotland – not a good idea.

Our conclusion: A liederadtandem, on the Stoker and Captain lie, is worth a try. But while it was still relatively easy to get the pilot for a test ride, the air was very thin. Too many models that convinced us technically were not in the raffle, and our – naked printed facts – favorite, the twin of the Czech company Azub, was nowhere to be found in Germany. That is, we could have done so if we had been willing to order it blindly. But if you plan to invest in the region of a cheap new car, it would not be so bad to do it after an extensive test. A round in the hall within a special exhibition does not really meet the criterion “extensively”
In the end, we set out for the Czech Republic to test directly at the manufacturer in the wintery White Carpathians. And even if we were on some ice-sloping dirt roads one or the other blue spot, and the tested model in many details was not “our bike” was clear: Heureka! The twin will be our travel vehicle of the future.
The rest of the idea of lie42.de then happened quite by itself: Is the Azub Twin actually nowhere to test drive, because nobody buys – or buy it no
