This one particularly took our fancy, but have a browse through what’s available from Scribbler’s range for designs to really make your dad’s day.

Socks are usually one of those gifts for when people have run out of ideas. In the case of cycling though, it’s more than important that your sock game is strong.

Morvelo’s striped socks are available in a vast array of colours to match or contrast with your dad’s bike, plus they’re full of technical features to keep his feet comfortable and cool.

Good multi-tools are hard to come by, and by far one of our favourites is the Topeak Ratchet Rocket, which couples removable bits with a wrench to actually provide decent leverage.

We doubt there’s a cyclist out there who hasn’t at one point or another worried about the weight of their bike or components.

The Feedback Sport Alpine Scale is what we’ve been using for a while as the ‘scale of truth’ at BikeRadar, and it’s proven to be reliable and accurate.

Alternatively, if you want to send your dad a not so subtle message that he might need to get out on his bike a bit more, then why not gift him some smart scales to assess his fitness levels.
