Frog 55 2021 Spotty 20" wheel kids bike with gears

Frog 55

The Frog 55 was Frog Bike’s original 20″ wheel bike, which was discontinued at the end of 2021, to be replaced by the new Frog 53

There are so many Frog 55’s around that there’s going to be plenty around second hand and to rent for years to come.

The Frog 55 is suitable for a child with an inside leg of 55cm and over.  It’s a good all round bike that’s equally suited to riding trails and paths as doing the school run. 

Older models used to get mudguards supplied as standard, and you can also fit a pannier rack if you’re carrying school books or camping equipment. 

For most children this will be their first experience of using gears on a bike, and Frog specified an easy to use 8 speed set up with an easy reach thumb shifter. 

The range of gears is good enough to get up most hills, and if it does get a bit too steep the bike is lightweight enough to hopefully allow your child to keep on pushing (although we can’t promise this – and if you do end up carrying it you’ll be appreciative that it only weighs 8.55kg) 

We reviewed one of the very first Frog 55’s to be released years ago, and were very impressed by the comfort of the ride, quality of the bike and it’s longevity.  Since then Frog continued to improve on the specification, making it a great secondhand or rental choice 20″ wheel hybrid bike for children aged approx 6 or 7 years of age. 

You can subscribe to the Bike Club and get the Frog 55 for a low monthly cost. When it gets too small just upgrade it for a bigger Frog.
