Almost 3 years ago we had become completely frustrated by the quality of the children's bike we had been offering, finding all of them to be of poor quality, too heavy, with limited sizing, and often in horrible colourways. We decided that we would rather not sell kid's bikes then sell crappy kid's bikes.
The very next day the sales rep for Frog Bikes walked into the shop unannounced and totally blew our minds by showing us these incredible bikes we had no idea existed.
Fast forward to today and we are now Canada's most successful Frog Bikes retailer!
Frog Bikes set out from the very beginning to create a product that would give children high quality, easily rideable bikes that could also be adjustable as they grow so parents could get a few years of use out of them. As a first step, Frog set out to study the differences between children and adults and the results of that study led them to make major changes to the design of their bike range.
Very recently, Frog was awarded the Red Dot for design excellence and the Queen's Award For Enterprise. They are definitely doing it right!
A few words about cost: Yes, these bikes a little more expensive to purchase and like all things in life, you get what you pay for. Lightweight, high quality bikes are worth every penny, especially when trying to pass along your love of cycling to your children. Many families are reporting back to us that they are getting incredible resale prices when passing them along to other families.
We asked a few of our Twitter followers what they liked about their Frog Bikes...
We got ours very recently - amazing build quality, incredibly complete component mix, and extras included. James absolutely adores his. PM for more info.— #RideJamesRide (@RideJamesRide) April 26, 2018
We like that it came with fenders and knobby tires, that it’s a good quality, lightweight bike. It’s easy for our son to ride. He likes that it’s red, and is looking forward to the next size up when he can get a rear rack.— Kelly (@Granigank) April 28, 2018
Our daughter wanted a commuter with the ability to have a rack and fenders; we wanted her to also be able to mountain bike/trail ride with it. So, it’s the best of both worlds for us, plus lightweight and beautifully built.— Lindsay (@thismombikes) April 26, 2018
I love that it's lightweight (my 7 year old can carry it up our front porch stairs by himself) and the fact that it came with fenders and two sets of tires (slick and mountain). So practical!— J. Karen Parker (@jkparker) April 26, 2018
We strive to have a full size run of these bikes assembled in our shop to size your child. You can also do the sizing yourself at home before coming by. If you are looking for a certain colour/size combination, give us a call to see if we have it in stock. If not, we are more than happy to order it in for you.
We also offer run bikes from Strider, bike mounted baby seats from Thule/Yepp, and a complete collection of cargo bikes from Benno, Xtracycle, Larry Vs Harry, and Urban Arrow.
