There's not a lot of Miele fans out there, or owners for that matter. Not south of the Canadian border anyway.
I own two, a Lupa and a Gara. I'm a huge fan. Beautifully built, very nice ride. If I saw a Miele tandem listed on Craigslist it would get my attention without a doubt.
What are they equal to? It hards for me to say. I think they're equal if not nicer that the early eighties middle to high end Treks which I also own. I don't know tandems well enough to suggest something close but for insurance replacement value the component group would weigh in as well.
I always love an excuse to post picture of my two:

Maybe some of our Canadian friend will chime in. The Miele market up north is twice as hot as it is in the states. Not sure if any of this helps but I'm sorry to hear you had such a wonderful bike stolen.
