Why buy a Frog 78?
Get sized for cycling success
The Frog 78 hybrid bike is suitable for 13+ years with a recommended inside leg measurement of 72cm-88cm.
One of the biggest temptations is to buy a child's bike that they will grow into. However, this will likely have the opposite effect and put your child off bikes and cycling altogether! Another common mistake is to purchase a budget kids' bike but these models are often as heavy as a child which can lead to frustration at not being able to cycle. That’s why Frog bikes are lightweight and designed to specifically accommodate the anatomy of children.
