We’re jumping for joy at the imminent arrival of our new range of Frog bikes – lightweight, aluminium bikes for children.
Forget those scaffold-tube steel monstrosities from budget bike stores. If you want to get your kids into cycling, it’s worth investing some money in a bike they can actually pedal. And remember that a decent bike will hold its value far better than some el-cheapo lump of lead picked up for peanuts.
The great thing about Frog kid’s bikes is that they’ve designed by a real, actual mum and dad – who tested their prototypes on their own children!
Here’s what Frog founders Jerry and Shelley say about their brand:
‘We are a small British company dedicated to making cycling fun for children. We believe that the lighter the bike, the easier it is for children to learn to ride, and to enjoy it more as they progress. Many children’s bikes on the market weigh nearly as much as the child!
‘So we set about re-designing the kids’ bike, sourcing a light but strong aluminium frame, and hand-picking components that offer a high performance without compromising the weight.’
Drover Cycles is stocking a big chunk of the Frog bike range, starting at £100 for a pedal-free balance bike aimed at 2-3 year-olds, right up to a £270 mountain bike – equipped with a proper suspension fork – for kids aged 8-10.
Options for quality children’s bikes are few and far between – there really are only a couple of names out there – so Frog are a welcome newcomer to the market.
And get this – all Frog bikes come with a whopping five year warranty on the frame and forks.
