Where to buy the cheapest Frog Bikes – September 2020
If you’re looking for a cheap, NEW Frog Bike at the moment, I’m afraid you’re most likely going to be disappointed . There’s a real shortage of new Frog Bikes – a small number are now becoming available in some sizes and colours. If you’re looking for a popular size Frog Bike or one of their mountain bikes, you’re most likely out of luck. The message from Frog Bike HQ is “due to exceptional demand, bikes are out of stock for the foreseeable future from our factory”. But don’t despair – keep reading and we’ll do our best to try and help you find a bike for your child!

September 2020 – CHEAPEST FROG BIKES ARE SECONDHAND!
The good news is that Frog bikes are so well built that they will last numerous children, so 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.

Check out these eBay links to find a bargain Frog Bike (ages are approximate)
FROG 48 ON EBAY (ages 4-5 years – 16″ wheels) – note their 16″ wheel bike has now been renamed the FROG 44 – the standover height on the older Frog Bikes requires your Sprog to be at least 4 cm longer in the leg.
FROG 52’s ON EBAY (ages 5-6 years – 20″ wheels small frame)
FROG 62’s ON EBAY (ages 8- 10 years – 24″ wheels)

Ex Demo and Hire Frog Bikes at Rutland Cycles
Rutland occasionally runs a “Pre-loved” sale of refurbished ex-hire and demo bikes. These vary depending on what they have in stock and tend to shift quickly, but you can sometimes get up to 30% off. 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.
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:
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.
