A Brief Pedro’s History
In 1989, roommates Bruce Fina and Andrew Herrick founded the Pedro’s brand around a revolutionary chain lube called 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, word spread, demand skyrocketed, and the Pedro’s brand was officially off to the races!

With the mountain bike boom of the 90’s, the New England based Pedro’s grew quickly over the next six years introducing Syn Grease, Syn Lube Road, Bio Degreaser, Bike Lust polish, Extra Dry lube, Oranj Peelz degreaser, and a small line of accessories made from recycled plastics including the Milk levers, Milk Cage, and grips. The brand also launched its famous grassroots support program, racing service program, and mountain bike festival. The brand’s roots in cycling had been firmly planted and a cult following ensued. People loved Pedro’s for its customer focus, grassroots support, easy-going nature, and growing line of eco friendly products.
By 2000, Pedro’s added a complete line of professional grade tools uniquely positioning itself as a complete bicycle maintenance brand. The additional products further supported the grassroots program and Pedro’s Racing Service and Pedro’s supported as many as 375 grassroots riders and 60 events each year.
Today, our small team proudly carries on the Pedro’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 keep your bike running right, so you enjoy every ride.

Most of our tools and accessories are designed and engineered in the United States and manufactured in Taiwan where we work with a small family-run business which has worked exclusively with Pedro’s since the late 1990s. They provide Pedro’s with incredible manufacturing expertise and contribute significantly to the quality Pedro’s is known for. To ensure all products are purchased at fair rates, we utilize an open pricing policy with our partner giving two-way visibility to all costs and sales pricing. Our partner employs many workers directly at fair wages as determined by local cost of living and quality of life, and also works with local manufacturing facilities to source components for our products working diligently to ensure these businesses treat their employees fairly and safely.
