About Us at Pedallers

Some may say it’s just an excuse to spend more time riding. Or thinking about riding. Or even buying more kit.

But, we say Cycling is more than a hobby; it’s a pursuit that pedals to the heartbeat of adventure. Every turn of the crank is a testament to our philosophy: cycling isn’t an activity, it’s a lifestyle.

Welcome to Pedallers, where the journey of cycling meets the rigor of science, and where every ride is a step towards achieving your personal best.

History of Pedallers

Pedallers was originally the name of an old school bike shop in Rochester, New York State, where you could about smell the Campagnolo. The shop was opened in 1973 and then taken over in 1981 by the long-term owner Bob DeRoo.

At this point, Bob shifted the shop’s focus and concentrated on high-end racing bikes before expanding the shop and even creating regular community rides – a novel concept at the time. In 1999, the store joined the dotcom boom and created an online presence, seen by many as quite an accomplishment for a small business in that era.

Here’s the Pedallers shop’s mission statement posted on the original website:

The Pedallers Bicycle Shop, Ltd. exists to promote cycling and cycling related activities as a life style. The staff should enjoy being with our customers and provide them with a memorable and enjoyable shopping experience while giving them truthful and knowledgeable information to help resolve their cycling problems which will allow them to better achieve their personal cycling goals.

It is important for us to remember that we should always put the customer’s needs and desires ahead of our own personal biases or specific needs of the store. We want to treat each customer as we would want to be treated under similar circumstances and then we believe God will give us the increase.

In 20 years, the Pedallers Bike Shop continued to serve a unique racer niche in New York. Upon Bob’s retirement and subsequent shop closure in 2019, the website was acquired to become an online-only presence, and in 2022 finally taken over by a cycling YouTuber, thus unifying the Pedallers brand and solidifying it for history. 

Pedallers, as you see it today, creates unique cycling-specific content created by our team of experts, where we focus on cycling gear, fitness, health, and experiences. Curated by us for you, we hope you enjoy and get value out of your Pedallers experience. We aim to stick to that original mission statement from the shop days … just as Bob would have wanted.
