Father's Day Gift Guide
June 12, 2017, 12:00 am

Father's Day is this weekend, and we've always thought it's the perfect holiday for active dads. By mid-June, Dad probably has enough miles in that his bike could use a few things, and he's also had enough time in the saddle to know what he needs to be more comfortable, fast, and a bit more stylish. We've put together just a few things that might be just what the Old Man needs this weekend. 

A New Lid. Helmets should really be replaced every two years, according to most manufacturers. Sweat, sun, and normal wear and tear make the materials harden, causing them to be more likely to crack, rather than absorb an impact. Scott has been putting out some sharp, safe and affordable helmets for years, but the Fuga might just be the best bang for your buck. Black is always in style, but white is actually one of the most visible colors on the road.

 

It's Tire Time. By the middle of June, a lot of riders are ready for fresh rubber. It's always good to balance flat protection, weight, and feel to get the right tires for your style of riding. The go-to mountain bike tires are Schwalbe Racing Ralphs and Rocket Rons, especially if you're really into riding the singletrack. We're also big fans of the Continental Race King, a lower-profile tire with less aggressive tread that works great in the sand. On the road, the famous Continental Gatorskin is always a good option, especially if Dad isn't racing too much anymore. Unmatched flat protection, a long lifespan, and a very supple ride quality for the amount of rubber make it a good all-arounder. Try to go for a 25 or even 28 if you're looking for a smoother ride. 

Hot Threads. Whether it's time to replace worn out gear or add to the collection, a pair of good bibs and a nice jersey are always useful. We've got a wide selection of Pearl Izumi bibs and jerseys, including our line of City Bike Shop custom kits. Old-time stripes never go out of style, and the line features our updated logo and that famous CBS blue. 

Get Tune-Up. There's nothing quite like getting your bike professionally tuned-up, and there's nobody quite like Nate to do it. Grab a gift card and schedule your day a tune-up for Father's Day and give him the gift of a like-new bike, if you can't actually get him a new bike. Our turn-around time is usually just a couple of days, even in the height of summer. This way, he can't excuse his getting dropped on a poorly shifting bike!
