Where to buy the cheapest Frog Bikes – January 2021

If you’re looking for a cheap Frog Bike, we’re here to help!  If you’ve already been looking, you’ll probably realise that 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 year.

CHEAPEST FROG BIKES – January 2021

There is such a shortage of Frog Bikes at the moment, but here’s where we suggest looking:

Best place to buy a new Frog Bike

Wheelbase have some sizes of Frog Bikes in stock and are able to deliver (depending on stock levels and their courier, obviously things change with the ever moving covid lockdown restrictions).

Another good place to look for a Frog Bike at the moment appears to be eBay – there are a number of independent bike shops who are listing their stock there. Sadly you won’t get a discount on these, but with such a shortage of new Frog Bikes at the moment, this might be your best place to look.

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.

FROG TADPOLES ON EBAY (balance bikes)

FROG 43’s ON EBAY (ages 3-4 years – 14″ wheels) – note their 14″ wheel bike has now been renamed the FROG 40  – the standover height on the older Frog Bikes requires the child to be taller

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 55’s ON EBAY (ages 6-7 years – 20″ wheels large frame)

FROG 62’s ON EBAY (ages 8- 10 years – 24″ wheels)

FROG 69 / 73 / 78 (ages 10 and over – 26″ wheels)

Rent a Frog Bike from The Bike Club 

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 way to find a cheap kids bike - including cheap Frog Bikes, Islabikes, Squish Bikes and Forme Kinder and Cubley children's bikes. You lease your child a bike for a monthly rent and send the bike back when you child has outgrown it

 

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 from you so they can add it to their fleet.

UPDATE: Wednesday 6th January 2021 - After the Christmas rush The Bike Club are now restocking with both new and used bikes.  They've added this link which takes you to bikes ready for dispatch if you need a bike quickly.

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 won’t have any discounts, but if you’re desperate for a new Frog Bike  then you will  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

AW Cycles

Wheelbase

The Little Bike Company

Cycle Sense

South Down Bikes

Merlin Cycles

Frog 44 16" wheel bike for 4 and 5 year olds

 

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.

    Hello, We sell a wide range of Frog bikes in Cambridge and have the off road space for children to try them, along with qualified bikeability instructors to give learn to ride training if required. We’re about to open a family cycling shop and would be happy to offer a time limited discount for your readers.

    You can find second hand frog bikes on Secondbike too.
    It’s often better to buy a brand new bike but if you are planning to use it occasionally, you should go for an used bicycle.

    You say that Frog has forbidden discounting – what evidence do you have of this please as it would be a clear breach of UK competition law.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ian – apologies – I was slightly over zealous in my wording there and have removed. There are various bike manufacturers who are regularly excluded from the on-line stores discounting (i.e. not included in a 10% off code). In my experience there’s usually only several times a year when you can find discounts on new Frogs across all their retailers. However, when we find discounts on an individual store basis then we do list them. Apologies for the confusion. Karen

    Hi,

    The tredz discount code doesn’t work. Just a quick heads up. Looking to buy 3 bikes so was worth the discount.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ian – I’ve just retested the code and it seems to be working for the Frog Bikes I’ve tested, apart from the Road and Mountain Bikes. Was it these you were trying to buy? I’ve written to Tredz to find out whether these can be added in, and in the meantime I’ve updated the article to say the code is not currently valid on these bike. Apologies for the inconvenience. Karen

  5. Phil says:

    Hi, I followed your link to tredz to look at purchasing the frog 69 mtb for my boy, entered the ‘sprog10’ code and it won’t accept it, any reason why not? Thanks.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Phil – apologies for this and thank you for making me aware. I’ve written to Tredz to ask if there’s a reason why the Mountain Bikes (and it turns out road bikes) are not included in the discount code. I’ve updated the article in the meantime to make our other readers aware of this. Thanks Karen
