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 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 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.

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:

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

AW Cycles

Wheelbase

The Little Bike Company

Cycle Sense

South Down Bikes

Merlin Cycles

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.

 

Where to look for the Cheapest Frog Bikes on Black Friday deals

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.

    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
