Frog is a small British company dedicated to making cycling fun for children. Most bikes sold for kids are enormously heavy but, as we road cyclists know, the lighter the bike, the more fun it is. That’s even more important for children – a light bike makes learning easier, and is more fun as they progress. It also means they get less tired so you can ride further with them.
We sell their Road frame which is great both on the road and for off road tracks (supplied with canti brakes for mud clearance and two different sets of tyres). It’s got a light but strong aluminium frame with hand-picked components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight. They even have a unique crank with a reduced Q-factor for more efficient pedaling with smaller legs.
The smallest size with 20” wheels will suit children from around 6 years old and they’re even available in Team Sky colours.
They’re built to last – a 2 year warranty on parts and 5 years on frame and fork – which is why we can offer a unique buy back guarantee making life easy when your child needs to move to the next size.
We just got this lovingly restored and resprayed 1980's Woodrup road bike in store and couldn't help but write up a little blog on the bike itself and the brand.
When it comes to buying your new bike there are so many different options when it comes to spec choice that it can be quite the minefield. Bicycle gearing is perhaps the biggest and most complicated one of those mines with different brands, all with different groupsets, all at different speeds,mechanical or electronic, etc - if you don't already know the key differences between groupsets then it's easy to get lost. In this blog we strip back those complexities and offer a simple and basic guide to modern bicycle gearing.
