Frog Bikes Company Profile: Frog are a small Welsh company dedicated to making cycling fun for children. They quite rightly believe that the lighter the bike, the easier it is for children to learn to ride, and to enjoy riding the more as they progress. Many kids' bikes on the market weigh nearly as much as the child!
So Frog set about re-designing kids' bikes, creating a light but strong aluminum frame, and hand-picking components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight. The bikes are much easier to pedal due to a unique crank design from the renowned bicycle engineer Dimitris Katsanis (of Team GB Olympic fame). The new design reduces the Q-factor (the space between the pedals), allowing children to push more directly down when cycling, converting more of their energy into motion. Only Frog applies this level of rigour to the design of kids' bikes. All Frog Bikes are built in Cardiff, Wales.
These bikes are expensive, why would I buy one?
We admit it, they are. But if you want to introduce your child to cycling as a quality experience a quality bike makes a difference. That’s hard to pull off when you’re buying a heavy bike from a department store, often loaded with features that rarely work and only add to the weight. Frog keeps things simple and high quality in the interest of making a bike that lasts.
So, why wouldn’t I buy a bike from a department store?
Oh, it’s a long list. Most department stores tend to make the bike cheap in all the areas the customer can’t see. The wheels are usually single-walled instead of double-walled and almost never use stainless spokes. The ball bearings are rarely sealed (so they won’t last), and the frames are made of heavy steel rather than lightweight aluminum. Brake levers are adult-sized so kids can barely reach them, and the gears are so heavy it’s hard to turn the shifter. Then there are features that are meant to look cool but don’t work (and only add weight): suspension forks that don’t compress, cheap disc-brakes that make more noise than they stop, heavy one-piece cranks that loosen all the time, and a lot of heavy steel parts.
So, what makes a Frog bike so good?
The frame is made of lightweight aluminum so your child isn’t riding a bike that weighs nearly as much as them. The wheels use strong double-walled rims and stainless steel spokes which are laced to high quality sealed-bearing hubs so the bike can last years if not decades. The brake levers are made for smaller hands and are easy to pull. It’s a high-quality bike, and that means two things: it’s fun to ride, and its built to last!
What’s the warranty?

Frog offers a free extended warranty of 5 years on frames and forks (excluding suspension forks on MTBs) to the original owner if the bike is registered on Frog's website upon purchase.
