Product Details

Frog 70 Kids Road Bike - Team Sky Edition

The Team SKY Frog Road 70 is a lighter weight, better equipped road bike for youngsters from around 11-14 years old.

This is the Frog Road 70 dressed 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 is that, unlike some special edition bikes, you don't pay more for the logo. A Team Sky Frog bike doesn't cost a penny more than the standard (identically-spec'd) Frog model.

Why this bike is great

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.

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 2x9-speed gears via its Microshift gear shifters, Microshift derailleurs 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 (RRP £100) because it's more suitable for smaller hands than an equivalent Shimano shifter.

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 67 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 Frog Road 67 comes with lightweight alloy quick release wheels fitted with good quality Kenda 24 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 Frog Road 67 comes supplied with a second set of 24 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. Consider these options as your summer and your winter tyres.

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 Frog Road 70 is recommended for children with a minimum inside leg measurement of 70cm (27.5 inches). This corresponds with other manufacturers' 26 inch wheel kids' road bikes, so the Frog 70 would make a great present for children from around 11/14 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.

  • Lightweight aluminium alloy frame (17 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 (140mm) length with 34/42 rings.
  • Child friendly 36cm-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: 70cm.
  • Approximate age range: from 11/14 year old.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 9.3kg.
