Product Description

Details

Team SKY Frog Road 58

This is the Frog Road 58dressed up in the colours and livery of Britain's (and arguably, the world's) most high-profile cycling team, Sky.

The great thing about this authentic road bike for kids as young as 6-7 is that, unlike some special edition bikes, you don't pay more for the logo. A Sky Frog bike doesn't cost a penny more than the standard (identically-spec'd) Frog model.

What else is great about this bike?

Lightweight alloy frame
Like most better-quality adult bikes, Frog 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 their bikes.

Lightweight alloy components
Sure, more and more companies are making kids' bikes with alloy (rather than heavier steel) frames and wheel rims. This Frog bike stands out for coming equipped with aluminium alloy forks, hubs, crankset, cantilever brakes, brake levers, handlebars and seatpost to keep the bike's weight to a minimum.

High quality Microshift brake/gear shifters
To make the bike suitable for gradients it comes with 9-speed gears via its Microshift gear shifter, Microshift derailleur and Shimano 9-speed cassette. To make it simpler for youngsters, it comes with just one shifter, one chainring and one derailleur. The Microshift shifter is integrated with the right-hand brake lever in a Shimano STI dual control style. Simply nudge the silver brake lever inwards to shift into a lower gear, or click the black return lever inwards to shift to a higher gear.

It's worth pointing out that opting for Microshift over a Shimano shifter was not a cheap option. Frog spec'd this shifter (which retails for over £100) because it's at least as good as Shimano Claris in quality, and because it has the shortest-reach brake lever (measured from lever blade to handlebar) and the shortest gear change 'sweep', making them the best dual control shifters on the market for riders with smaller hands.

Frog drop handlebars
Frog designed a unique bar that is the correct width, appropriate to a small rider's shoulder width, and with minimum drop to make it easier for the young rider to switch hand position.

Two pairs of brake levers
The Tektro Oryx cantilever brakes (which we have seen gracing £1,000 adult cross bikes and touring bikes) can be applied from the Microshift child-friendly drop bar levers. Alternatively, the Frog Road 58 comes with a set of Tektro auxiliary levers that enable the rider to pull the brakes when riding with their hands comfortably perched on the bar tops.

Quick-release wheels
Another original detail rarely seen on kids' bikes is that the Team Sky Frog Road 58 comes with lightweight alloy quick release wheels fitted with good quality Kenda 20 x 1 1/8th inch road tyres, making this bike capable of sprinting and accelerating - just like an adult road bike.

Two sets of tyres
To make the bike even more versatile, the Team Sky Frog Road 58 comes supplied with a second set of 20 x 1 3/8th Kenda cyclocross tyres. Swapping over to these slightly wider, more knobbly tyres doesn't just give the young rider an early opportunity to take up cyclocross racing. They make the bike more fit for exploring unpaved cycle paths - just like an adult cyclocross bike. You might consider these options as the bike's summer and winter tyres.

Also, with cyclocross conversion in mind, Frog have internally routed the rear brake cable inside the frame so the cable is out of the way when the rider shoulders the bike.

Sizing
Another example of Frog's original approach: rather than naming their kids' bikes by wheel size, Frog size their bikes by inside leg measurement. Hence the Team Sky Frog Road 58 is recommended for children with a minimum inside leg measurement of 58cm (23 inches). This corresponds with other manufacturers' 20 inch wheel kids' bikes, so the Frog 58 would make a great present for children from 6/7 year olds. 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 8, 9 or 10 years old.

  • Lightweight aluminium alloy frame (11 inch seat tube) and fork.
  • Quick release (no need to carry a spanner to change a tube) aluminium wheels.
  • The Prowheel alloy cranks are a child-friendly short (114mm) length.
  • A double chainguard prevents contact with the crank's 34t chainring.
  • Child friendly 32cm-wide short-drop alloy handlebars.
  • 'Short drop' means a child-friendly shorter distance between the bar tops and the drops than you'd find with adult drop bars.
  • Minimum recommended inside leg measurement to the floor: 58cm.
  • Approximate age range: from 6/7 to 9/10 year old.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 8.2kg.

Frog Bike Overview
Frog are Britain's kids' bike specialists. That's all they produce. Their kids' range isn't an afterthought. It's their reason to be.

Frog are a British company who have revolutionised our expectations of what we have come to expect from children's bike since their launch in season 2013/14.

Frog's winning formula is to create lighter weight, better spec'd, better designed kids' bikes at prices that are competitive with their closest rivals.

This formula of creating lighter weight, more intelligently designed kids' bikes has obviously been a success with our customers because within a year of their launch, Frog bikes have firmly established themselves as our best selling children's bikes.

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

 

Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op and Team Sky Frog Bikes
Our first instinct is to support every initiative that promotes cycling.

Sometimes, we welcome support for cycling from the most unexpected sources - think of Boris and his bikes.

We have actively supported Sky's grass routes cycling initiatives such as their closed road city ridesand their nationwide local rides, which have encouraged thousands (some reckon over a million) more people to consider cycling as an everyday option.

Similarly, Sky's input into British Cycling's Olympic and Tour de France success has done wonders for the profile of cycling in this country. Witness the millions that crowded the roads of Yorkshire in July 2014. If you were there, you couldn't help notice the thousands of kids wearing Sky tops. So much so, for once, kids in cycling tops massively outnumbered those wearing replica football tops.

It's clear that Sky is doing a lot to make cycling a mainstream sport and an activity that can be enjoyed by almost everyone.

If the glamour of Team Sky motivates a youngster to take a break from screen-time and discover the fun, the freedom, the self reliance and healthy pleasure of riding a bike, we welcome Frog bikes tie-up with Sky.

And, of course, if Sky blue isn't for you, you can always get the same superb bike - the Frog Road 58- with Frog's original paint job.

Here's how Frog bikes describe their relationship with Sky.

'Team Sky Kids' Bikes Designed By Frog

Helping kids enjoy the freedom of cycling
Team Sky and Frog Bikes have joined forces to develop a new range of high quality, lightweight kids' bikes to encourage more kids to get out and enjoy the freedom of cycling. Frog only make bikes for kids and now, with Team Sky, have the ultimate partnership. Together we're making a giant leap forward for kids' bikes!

The Team Sky Kids' Bike Range

Giant leaps begin with little wins
Giant leaps come in different forms - from the first moments of gliding on a balance bike to taking part in the first race. Owning a Team Sky Kids' Bike is about learning skills, gaining confidence and, most importantly, having fun! There is a Team Sky Kids' Bike for all kids from ages 2 to 14. The range includes a balance bike, first pedal bike, and variety of sizes in hybrids and road bikes.

With the same great features you would expect from Frog, each of our bikes is lightweight and designed specifically with the younger rider in mind - and of course, they all carry Team Sky's signature blue line. The blue line is like Team Sky's badge, and connects the whole team together in the shared ambition of being the best. It appears on everything - the bikes, kit, cars and even the team bus. With the blue line and distinct Team Sky colours on your bike, you can feel like a pro and part of the team.

Little Things Make A Big Difference

  • Lightweight frames
  • Quality componentry
  • Affordability
  • Slim-grip brakes
  • Narrow handlebars.

'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.'
