In 1989, roommates Bruce Fina and Andrew Herrick founded the Pedro’s brand around a revolutionary chain lube, Syn Lube, developed by Bruce’s tribologist brother.
Friends of Bruce and Andrew were living and racing mountain bikes in the Pacific Northwest and couldn’t find a lube that would last an entire race in the muddy conditions. The other Teflon-based chain lubes couldn’t handle the mud. Formulated with extreme pressure additives, corrosion inhibitors, and tackifiers to provide incredible wear protection, lubrication, and staying power in extreme wet and muddy conditions, Syn Lube quickly became the lube of choice.
Once mountain bikers tried Syn Lube and experienced its performance, news spread swiftly, demand skyrocketed, and the Pedro’s brand was officially off to the races!
By 2000, Pedro’s added a complete line of professional grade tools, uniquely positioning itself as a complete bicycle maintenance brand.
Today, Pedro’s proudly carries on the brand’s traditions of customer focus, grassroots support, and easy-going attitude while continuing to offer innovative, quality tools that last, and safe, high performance bike care that keeps your bike running right so you can get the most out of every ride.
