About US

Eddie's Bicycles & Hockey Equipment has been serving cyclists and skaters in the State College area & Centre County region and beyond since 1985. Originally, this shop was the location of John's Derailleurs way back in 1970. When Eddie was attending college here at Penn State, he walked into John's Derailleurs. For Eddie, it was love at first sight; since he not only loved playing hockey, but he also loved cycling. Eddie got a job at John's Derailleurs soon after he found the shop, and loved it so much that he vowed to one day own the place himself. Well, Eddie stayed true to his word and he bought John's Derailleurs when he saw it went up for sale. And so Eddie's Bicycles & Hockey Equipment was born in 1985.
Since then, Eddie has been helping skaters and cyclists in the State College area ever since. Eddie has always tried to run a friendly shop, focused on helping people, and selling the quality products that he loves and trusts. These days, Eddie and Zach are the only two people running the shop. Eddie handles business operations, the hockey and skating-related customers and their service needs, as well as assisting with bike sales, minor bike repairs and whatever else may come along. Zach handles bikes sales, greeting and assisting customer and is the primary bicycle technician. We are an effective team. We like the fact that we get to interact with nearly everyone who comes in to our bike shop. When you come in to visit, there's a good chance you'll speak to the same person you spoke to last time. It means Eddie and I will get to know you, your needs, and it enables us to help you better. It ensures a personal level of service you just cannot get with a big bike shop.
