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:

The Little Bike Company          Leisure Lakes Bikes

AW Cycles             Wheelbase             Cycle Sense                              

South Down Bikes                   Merlin Cycles

Cheapest Frog Bikes - June 2022

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

Places to check if you want a discount on a new Frog Bike

Lease a Frog Bike from The Bike Club and get your first month FREE!

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, ranging from £6.99 per month for a mini balance bike through to £25.49 per month for the largest Frog Mountain Bike.

In return, they take away all the hassles of having to find a new bike every time your child grows.

Hire

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.

They have a range of brands and models so if they don't have the size in stock you need you can try a different type of bike for a while and return to Frog if you want to next time around.

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 Frog bikes available this June they're quite likely to be reUsed given the overall shortage of Frog bikes.

However, everyone we know who's had a reBike has been really impressed - they get put through the workshop before being sent out again, and as we all know Frog Bikes are built to last you end up with a really good bike, for even less money than if you were renting a brand new one.

If you really want a new bike and Frog's aren't in stock then you can opt for the brand new Forme Bikes, which launched late last year and is a great alternative option to a Frog Bike.

The Bike Club seem to have good stock levels of Forme bikes whereas they have gaps in their stock of Frog Bikes.

If you have an old Frog Bike, Hoy 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.

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 secondhand 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 the following eBay links to find a bargain Frog Bike (ages are approximate):

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.

Phil

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

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

Karen

Phil, just to update you – Tredz have now added Frog Mountain Bikes into their discount code. Regards Karen

Ian Ryan

Hi,

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

Karen

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

Ian

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

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

Tom

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.

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.
