Frog 43 Kids' First Pedal Bike

The Frog 43 is an easier rolling, lighter weight 14 inch-wheel kids' bike.

Frog is a new British company specializing in better-quality kids' bikes.

Frog Video
Frog's passion for making better bikes for kids shines through in this video.

 

Frog bikes, like better-quality adult bikes, are built with aluminium frames and (mostly) aluminium parts to keep the weight to a minimum. That way your child(ren) will experience maximum joy riding one of these bikes.

An example of their original approach, rather than numbering their kids' bikes by wheel size, Frog size their bikes by inside leg measurement. Hence the Frog 43 is recommended for children with a minimum inside leg measurement of 43cm (17 inches). This corresponds with other manufacturers' 14 inch wheel kids' bikes, so the Frog 43 would make a great present for children from 3/4 year old. It comes with a long aluminium seatpost with a quick release seat binder to make it easy to adjust the saddle as the child grows all the way up to around 6 or 7.

Faster Wheels
Another original detail is that the Frog 43 comes with lightweight alloy wheels fitted with good quality Kenda 14 x 1.5 inch hybrid tyres which will be easier rolling than the 14 x 2 inch knobbly mountain bike tyres you'll find on most of their competitors' bikes. Skinnier tyres make a Frog bike easier to accelerate and hence more fun to ride much of the time.

Second pair of tyres
Having said that, if you young-one wants to get more adventurous, you'll be delighted to hear that the Frog 43 comes supplied with a second pair of knobbly mountain bike tyres. That way, a simple tyre swap will make the bike fit for dirt tracks and trail centres.

Choice of Colours
Technical attributes aside, this is no ugly frog. Frog bikes look good, so your child should be really proud to own one. To help ensure they delight, Frog bikes are available in a choice of colours.

  • Lightweight aluminium alloy frame (9 inch seat tube) and fork.
  • Lightweight aluminium wheel rims and hubs.
  • No gears for single speed simplicity.
  • The alloy cranks are a child-friendly short (114mm) length.
  • A nylon chainguard prevents contact with the crank's 36t chainring.
  • The sealed bottom bracket ensures these cranks spin freely.
  • The 440mm alloy handlebar is fitted with narrow grips for smaller hands.
  • This bars are fitted to a short 60mm alloy stem to keep them within easy reach.
  • Tektro alloy V-brakes with alloy levers are such excellent stoppers, they are a common sight on good quality £300-£400 adult bikes.
  • Being a British company, Frog know to equip their bikes with front and rear mudguards.
  • Minimum recommended inside leg measurement to the floor: 43cm.
  • Minimum recommended child height: 104cm.
  • Approximate age range: from 3-4 to 6-7 year old.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 7kg.

'Frog Bicycles
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. The founders, Jerry and Shelley, are a couple who have 2 small children of their own – both keen cyclists. So they know something about what motivates children to get on their bikes! Since the first prototype arrived, the bikes have always been robustly tested by the children and all their friends.'
