Since last week we got a Frogbike in our family. It is our third frogbike.
In the past we had a Frogbike 55 (20 inch/ 2014), frogbike 62 (24 inch/ 2015) and now we got a Frogbike 78 (26 inch/ 2018)
We had a Cube 260 in the family with a bit to large cranck set and my son wasn’t happy riding it. On his Genesis Core 26 however he did like riding.
During some mtb chalanges I met Pieter from “De Kleine Spaak” ( dutch bikeshop specialized in lightweight kids bikes)
He told me Frogbikes will come with a new Frog 78 with a better geometry. This winter we had a test ride on the new Frogbike with good results.
After the test ride we did order our new Frogbike 78 in Neon red.
We do have the bike at home now and I’m planning to create a trekking bike out of it. More info in a special post.
The Frogbike 78 is available in the following colors: Neon Red, Neon Green, Dark Grey, Team Sky Black .
Check your local bike store if you want some help on creating a trekkingbike from your Frogbike.
