Without a doubt, the best gift you can give to any bike-riding dad would be to spend the day together exploring the city on two wheels. But if you’re looking for a little something you can gift-wrap, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite small (and large) gifts that any cycle-happy dad would be sure to love.
If your dad is the walking embodiment of the expression “You’d lose your head if it wasn’t attached to your neck,” then Spurcycle’s Key Clip is just thing they need. Laser cut from stainless steel, this rugged little clip is built to last, so dad’s keys won’t go tumbling onto the street when he rides over a few too many potholes. Bonus point? It doubles as a bottle opener.
If pop is the type to tinker around with machinery but maybe not the most, shall we say, proficient at it, then the OTTO tuning system might just be the little boost he’s looking for. The tuning system 2.0 is a voice-guided app vision tool and app which checks the alignment of your derailleur in under 60 seconds. Taking the mystery out of your machinery, the tuning system is great for both road cyclists and everyday riders who keep their wheels ride in tip-top shape.
This beastly beauty will give dad a vote of confidence that his bike is secure in even the shadiest of situations. Built from hardened steel, the new Bordo features an anti-tamper keyhole, synthetic coating to protect the bike’s paint job, and an updated frame mount that makes getting the lock in and out its clasp a breeze. Perfect for style-conscious dads in the big city.
Let’s face it, repairing a bike on the ground just sucks. For the dads who like to do their own repairs, the Sport-Mechanic work stand is one of the first tools they’re going to need. When he’s not using it, the stand folds into a compact unit for easy storage.
Who says waterproof gear needs to look like camping gear? Ortlieb’s Barista shoulder bag and pannier takes the waterproof quality the company is known for and applies it to a stylish urban aesthetic. The bag has space for smart phone, keys, papers etc., internal organization pockets, a key snap and pen holder, and a magnetic snap closure for ease of use.
For dads who like music as much as they like bikes, the boomBars offers a lightweight, convenient way to bring the tunes along for the ride. Packing a surprising punch for such a little speaker, the boomBars easily mount onto your handlebars and stream music via bluetooth, for 5 hours of continuous playback.
After it took Kickstarter by storm, this understated little bike bell from Knog has hit the shelves and is ready to ring-a-ling along. The Oi bell redefines the classic bicycle bell both in shape and in sound, and makes a perfect little trinket for dads who take their bike style seriously.
Father’s Day sits right before the official start of summer. When dad is packing up his panniers for a weekend ride out of the city, send him out prepared. From Swift’s Hinterland collection, this handsome enamelled steel camp mug will hod 12 0z of dad’s favorite beverage, perfect for overnight bike camping or simply enjoying a cup in the city park.
