MECHANIC SINCE 2009
What exactly do you do in AZUB?
I help fulfil dreams of adventures and travelling.
How did you come to work here?
AZUB were looking for a new team member, I got the e-mail, read it, but I thought that working for AZUB was unrealistic for me. In the end I gave in to my wife though and went for an interview. And I am glad I did.
What made the prospect of working in AZUB attractive for you?
Ever since 1998, when I built my first recumbent bike, I have been absolutely fascinated by these machines. They had all the things I missed on traditional bikes – comfort, ergonomic seating position, great views from the seat. And in AZUB, I got involved with these machines, machines that are truly professional, no “homebuilts” like mine.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I love the moment when I take a completed bike out of the stand and go to try it out, then I pack it knowing that when somewhere in the world somebody opens the box, it will bring a lot of pleasure to its new owner.
And what do you really hate?
There might be a few things but even negative feedback is good when it is solved with the right people.
Do you remember your first encounter with a recumbent bike?
The first one I saw was in a magazine and it became my inspiration in the construction of my own version. After

The Ti-Fly. It is a versatile and comfortable bike, great for long distance
When you are not in AZUB, what do you do?

Which bike do you use the most?
Recently, mainly tricycles. My last one was the AZUB TRIcon and now I have an experimental off-road delta trike. It has been specially adapted for the toughest of terrains. In addition, sometimes I use the company
