How to choose a Child's Bike

In contrast to many children's bikes, Frog bikes are sized by the length rather than age, as this is the most reliable way of getting the right size of bike for each child. Age alone isn't a reliable measure as there is a large spread of "normal" leg lengths & heights for age.

Please take the time to measure the rider's inside leg. It's easy to measure:

  1. Stand the child in socks against wall
  2. Place a small book between their legs, as high as is comfortable
  3. Ask the child to move away and measure from the top of the book to the floor

Once you have measured the inside leg, use this table to find the right size bike for your child. Note we give the MINIMUM inside leg length for each bike, with the saddle at it's lowest setting. At this height, the child will safely be able to get their feet to the ground. Don't worry - Frog Bikes have long seat posts, so the saddle can be raised a long way as the rider grows.

Of course all children have different length arms and torsos too, so to ensure a comfortable riding position, the handlebar height can be tailored, and saddles can be slid back and forwards on their rails.(These adjustments are easy to do and just need an allen key; instructions are in the manual that comes with each bike.

This bike is great! I bought it for my 2 year old. He hopped on without any instruction and just started walking along. 1 week later, he is starting to glide for short distances. High quality, great construction, and looks like a big boy bike!
Delivery to USA was very quick and everything arrived in perfect condition. Quality of components, materials as well as frame welding and paint finish appear very neat and strong. Assembly was simple and everything fit precisely. The bike feels very solid and smooth. I'm confident the bike will last a long time. My 3 year old daughter loves her Frog Tadpole bike and was up and gliding around in just minutes. Steering and brakes are smooth and predictable. Researching prior to purchase, I found many choices in this category of bike. After owning for several weeks, I'm certain this is one of the best ones available.
I researched balance bikes over winter and when spring hit, wanted to get one for our 2 year old. I finally settled on the Frog Tadpole with Union Jack colors. We live in the US, but it was less expensive to ship from the UK than to buy it here and it was in stock. I ordered it over the weekend and it was here by Wednesday when I got home from work. It was easy to un-package and put together. Just a few allen bolts to set the handlebars and the front tire and we were pretty much ready to roll. Wrenches were included. The buying experience and putting it together were pretty seamless and easy. The bike itself is a quality bike. This isn't a toy, this is a well made bike. It's light, he has no problems setting down or picking up and if we're out on a trail and he gets tired of it, I can carry it pretty easily. I'm very happy with the quality of my purchase and the ease and convenience of the buying experience. I would buy from here again.
