In 1989 two guys from New England created Pedro’s. The first order for products came from Downeast Bicycle Distributors in Maine, USA. It came over the fax machine at the University President’s Office at Tuft’s University while Bruce and Andrew were still in college. After University they moved to Rhode Island for the cheap rent and a garage to work in. 30 Brewer St in Newport.
First successes came in the expo at the Mt Snow NORBA event. There were only 2 other companies there when Pedro’s started, Shimano and Specialized. From there Pedro’s continued going to events and giving out free lube jobs. Then told people to go to the shop and buy some. It worked.
That company grew considerably to become Pedro’s Inc., with more than 100 bicycle care products sold in 41 countries.
