Located 40 miles north of Pittsburgh, in an 1886 historic gem of a building along the beautiful Butler-Freeport Community Trail in Herman, Pennsylvania   Step from the trail into our distinctive Café and Retail establishment, featuring wholesome food and refreshing beverages, bicycle repairs, accessories and gear.  Whether on foot, one wheel, two wheels, skis or dog sled, you'll find good food, bike talk and great friends at Derailleur Bike Shop Café

Gavin Archer and Dee Stephen, both avid cyclists, wanted to create a business that incorporated the recreation activity they love. The couple fulfilled their dream on July 4, 2014 with the opening of Derailleur Bike Shop Café, catering to Butler-Freeport Community Trail users.

Derailleur was four years in the making. The couple completed extensive renovations to the property which included replacing the flooring, wiring, plumbing, and roof as well as demolishing a damaged train ticket office that was attached to the store.  

Archer and Stephen preserved the historic feel of the property, retained the original woodwork and built-in shelving. “We wanted to incorporate the bicycle shop into something that would be useful for all users of the trail, not just cyclists,” said Stephen. As a family run, socially responsible company, Derailleur advocates healthy living and alternative transportation.
