Why:
Frogbikes make perfect kids bikes but miss out on some parts.

  • No reflective striping on the tyres. (most common in europe)
  • mudgard don’t have a break out.
  • Shimano Acera 8 speed is a to “light” for serious climbs.

Since our first Frog bike some things have been changed:

  • Mounting option for locks.
  • mounting options for mudgard.

So I decide to make some changes to our frogbike.
My local bike shop “de Kleine Spaak” has this options availalbe for buyers as well.

 

Parts:
I use the following parts to create a trekkingbike.
Pricing is a indication.

Total extra costs are approx $ 330,-
The schwalbe Big Apple tyres are a bit expensive but they help to get a better comfertable ride.

Many off the parts would be available for a lower price. I did want to create a solid bike at a low weight.
For every part I did make choose between price/ weight/ quality.
These choices will be differant for every one.

the total weight is  13,4 kg ( 29,5 LBS). The lock with a weight of 700 gram makes the Frog 78 a bit heavier.
The first 12 km have been made. Finn did like his new bike.
Many kilometers will follow.
