Where to buy the cheapest Frog Bikes – Black Friday 2020
If you’re looking for a cheap, NEW Frog Bike to buy this Black Friday I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed. There’s a real shortage of new Frog Bikes – it seems they’ve had a real problem with supply since Covid-19 stuck. The message until recently from Frog Bike HQ has been “due to exceptional demand, bikes are out of stock for the foreseeable future from our factory”. They now seem to have started up production, but anything that does become available is being snapped up full price. But don’t despair – keep reading and we’ll do our best to try and help you find a cheap Frog bike for your child this Black Friday

CHEAPEST FROG BIKES – Black Friday 2020
Rent a Frog Bike from The Bike Club and get 50% off your first 3 months rental
The best place to try and get hold of a cheap Frog Bike at the moment is to sign up for a monthly rental from The Bike Club. They operate a really great kids bike leasing service, where you pay them a monthly subscription payment and in return they take away all the hassles of having to find a new bike every time your child grows.
You can opt for a new bike or a reUsed bike, and all returned bikes get serviced and send out to the next user, meaning this is a really environmentally friendly model of bike ownership. It’s worth noting that if they have any Frogs available at the moment they’re likely to be reUsed given the overall shortage of Frog bikes.
If you really want a new bike then you can opt for the brand new Forme Bikes, which launched earlier this year and a great alternative option to a Frog Bike – the Bike Club have good stock levels of these bikes at the time of writing.
The Bike Club is a great idea and a lot of our friends and family use it. Just select the size bike your child needs now, and return it for an upgrade when it’s too small. The Bike Club will send the next size, plus they have a range of brands and models so you can try a different type of bike for a while and return to Frog if you want to next time around.
If you have an old Frog Bike or Islabike that your child has grown out of they will even buy this off of you so they can add it to their fleet.
Prices range from just £5.00 a month for a reUsed Frog Tadpole Mini through to £26.75 per month for a new Frog MTB 72 AND THEY ARE CURRENTLY GIVING NEW SUBSCRIBERS 50% OFF THEIR FIRST 3 MONTHS!

Second hand Frog Bikes
The good news is that Frog bikes are so well built that they will last numerous children, so if you don’t want to lease a Frog Bike it’s well worth looking for a second hand option. We can attest to Frog Bikes longevity as we recently passed a Frog 55 onto its 5th rider in 5 and a half years.

*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.
Bike shops which usually stock Frog Bikes and offer home delivery
Whilst Frog Bikes are in incredibly short supply, you may wish to call around some independent bike shops and see if they have any stock remaining. They don’t necessarily have any discounts, but if you’re desperate for a new Frog Bike then you may have to pay full price and hunt around for somewhere with the size you need. You can’t be too fussy in terms of colour at the current time – sorry!
Places that offer home delivery to check for in-stock Frog Bikes:
Leisure Lakes Bikes
The Little Bike Company
South Down Bikes
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.
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.
