Where to buy the cheapest Frog Bikes - April 2020
There are a couple of deals available on Frog Bikes at the moment and in this post, we bring you details of where to find the cheapest Frog Bike.
BEWARE: Not all headline deals are the same – you have to watch out for:
a) stock levels – some retailers are listing stock they don’t have and need you to phone through to check availability
b) hidden costs – some retailers charge extra for certain colour combinations
c) delivery costs – some retailers charge extra for home delivery
d) returns policy – some retailers offer 14 day returns, others 365 days
e) delivery timescales - obviously at the current time all retailers are trying to deal with the current situation. Some will have stock available, others will be waiting for it to be delivered to them.

April 2020 - FROG BIKES
Here’s our guide to some of the best deals on Frog Bikes available at the moment:
Last updated Wednesday 1st April 2020
Merlin Cycles - good value bundles if you want a helmet too
Merlin Cycles have got the option to do a "bundle" which gives you a kids cycle helmet virtually free. Their website states they charge £19.99 for delivery of a bike, however, the Frog Bikes we've checked are showing as free delivery.
£5 off Frog Bikes at Tredz if you sign up for their newsletter before purchasing
Tredz have a very easy to use website, and good stock levels in virtually every size and colour combination of Frog Bikes - they're ideally situated very close to the Frog Bike factory in Swansea! They also offer free home delivery and a 365 day returns policy plus interest free finance if you need it.
**** If you sign up for the Tredz newsletter before you pay (which you can d0 from their home page), you will get sent a £5 voucher off your first purchase immediately which you can apply before you checkout ******
Ex Demo and Hire Frog Bikes at Rutland Cycles
Rutland have just launched their "Pre-loved" sale of refurbished ex-hire and demo bikes. At the time of writing there were a couple of Frog Bikes available with up to 30% off, although of course, these are on-offs and likely to shift quickly. Rutland state:
- All pre-loved bikes are fully checked and set up by our experienced mechanics
- Full warranty is included*
*Please note that manufacturers warranty doesn't cover 'wear and tear' which is to be expected on a pre-loved bicycle. Some components will have a lifespan that is shorter than that quoted by the manufacturer from new.
Frog Bike Exchange at Edinburgh Cycles
Edinburgh Cycles are currently running their popular Frog Bike Exchange, where you can take in your old Frog Bike and they will part exchange it for a brand new bike.
Please don't visit your local Frog Stockist, use up a lot of their time test riding their stock and then go home and buy online for £5 cheaper. You'll regret it when your local bike shop closes down and you have nowhere to go next time. Only buy on-line if you're happy measuring your child, picking the correct size Frog and doing the final few bits of simple assembly when the bike arrives.
SECOND HAND FROG BIKES
The best way to get a really cheap Frog Bike (and to help save the planet!) is to buy second hand! Frog bikes are so well built that they will last numerous children - we can attest to this as we've just passed a Frog 55 onto its 5th rider in 5 and a half years. You may want to look at our post on buying a second hand kids bikes before you close a deal.
Check out these eBay links to find a bargain Frog Bike (ages are approximate)
- FROG 43's ON EBAY (ages 3-4 years - 14" wheels)
- FROG 48 ON EBAY (ages 4-5 years - 16" wheels)
- FROG 52's ON EBAY (ages 5-6 years - 20" wheels small frame)
- FROG 55's ON EBAY (ages 6-7 years - 20" wheels large frame)
- FROG 62's ON EBAY (ages 8- 10 years - 24" wheels)
There's also a great Pre-Owned Frog Facebook Group which has lots of bikes up for sale.
Other places to buy new Frog Bikes:
If the above offers have expired, or they don't hold stock of the bike size/colour you want, then check out these alternatives:
Your local bike shop
Your local bike shop may do discounts if you're a member of a local cycle club, or if you buy several bikes from them at one time. They may also from time to time do discounts on ex-display models. You can find your nearest local Frog stockist here. This comes with the advantage that they will build the bike up for you, and you'll also have the satisfaction of knowing you're supporting a local business.
Independent bike shops offering FREE MAINLAND UK DELIVERY on Frog Bikes:
The best place to buy your Frog Bike will depend on which model and colour you are after, as not every retailer has them all in stock.
We'd love to hear if you find anywhere selling new Frog Bikes cheaper than we have found - do leave us a comment either in the comments section below or via the Cycle Sprog Facebook page. Thanks!
Long term leasing of Frog Bikes
For some families, a long term lease of a Frog Bike may be financially beneficial over buying new (although rarely over buying second hand). You can read more about how this works in our article - you do need to do the maths dependent on how many children you have who will want to ride the bike. For some families leasing is a real saving, for others you can end up spending more.
