Father's Day Gift Ideas For Mountain Biking Dads

Gift Card to an Online Retailer

Let's face it, mountain bikers can be hard to shop for, but it's never too late to give someone the perfect gift (especially if they can choose it themselves.) Digital gift cards are delivered the same day via email and can be redeemed immediately. You can choose to send the e-Gift Card directly to them or send it to yourself to deliver to them at a later date. Plus, you can personalize the message in the email to show how much they matter to you. Here are four great online retailers that can offer a wide range of great products for the cyclist in your life.

Race Face Chester Pedals
Alloy pedals are great for their resilience and visual appeal, but it's no secret that most of the time there's nothing lightweight about them. On the contrary, composite pedals may be light, but they also wear out easier and aren't as keen on footing. Race Face's Chester Composite Pedals offer the best of both realms, using its tough and burly nylon composite body to provide a large platform with the same superior grip you'd find on alloy pedals via the bottom loading 8 hex traction pins. Thin and lightweight is the name of the game with Chester, featuring a cro-mo axle that is fully sealed and a 100% serviceable bearing and bushing system. This pedal offers great performance for a wide range of riders at a price that leaves plenty of cash in pocket to spring for that round of bevies at your local watering hole after hammering out a day of hot laps with the crew.

PNW Rainier IR V3 Dropper Seatpost
The Rainer dropper post has earned a solid reputation for consistent, reliable performance, so rather than changing the formula entirely PNW opts for some minor refinements that make this third-generation the best one yet. Travel is increased, and the travel is now adjustable in 5mm increments so you can fine-tune the fit if your ideal travel is somewhere between 170 and 200mm. At the same time, the post's total length is shortened, which is always a good thing—especially for bikes with interrupted or shortened seat tubes.

Abbey Decade Chain Tool
If there's one thing we've learned from Abbey Bike Tools is just how fastidious the company is about the material choices, development, and design it instills into each and every tool. Take the Decade Chain Tool for instance. It spent a full two years of prototyping, testing, and revising before it was deemed ready for professional mechanics and for your shop. Abbey claims to have broken over 10,000 chains on a single tool and pin during its development, the equivalent of three chain installs per day, every day for 10 years, hence the name.
