We've not tested this bike, but have reviewed other Frog bikes and are happy to recommend them.
Frog Bikes are one of the best known and well-loved kids bike brands. They have a huge range of bikes that start with tiny balance bikes through to larger hybrids, such as the 24″ wheel Frog 62, as well as road, track and mountain bikes.
The Frog 62 is sized for a child with a minimum 62cm inside leg (that’s how the Frog naming convention works, which is an easy way to decide which bike your child needs), so about aged 8 upwards, although at lot of taller 7 year olds ride these bikes too.
Weighing in at 9.25kg the bike is nice and light, meaning your child will be able to easily manoeuvre it as well as lift it up and over any obstacles on the way (think steps, high kerbs or debris on a trail). The seat post and wheels are quick-release, making adjustments and maintenance easy.
There are 8 gears on the Frog 62, operated by a thumb shifter. There is a single 32 tooth chainring (the front gears) and this means there are no left-hand gears to worry about, making changing gears simple.
The range of gears at the back wheel go from a small 11 tooth gear (11T) for downhills through to a larger 32 tooth (32T) gear for climbing. This should be sufficient for most children, but if you are riding in a very steep and hilly area you may need a slightly larger gear, usually found on a mountain bike.
We’ve reviewed a number of Frog Bikes over the years and have always been impressed. You can read our review of the smaller 20″ wheel Frog 55 here.
You can subscribe to the Bike Club and get the Frog 62 for a low monthly cost. When it gets too small just upgrade it for a bigger Frog.
