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.
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.

Finn rijd al enige tijd op een Ghost Powerkid met 24 versnellingen. Met de originele 8 versnellingen komen we af en toe iets te kort op de klimmetje.
Het is mogelijk om een 8 speed om te bouwen naar een 9 speed cassette, je moet dan ook de derailleur en de shifters vervangen.
Voor onze reis naar noorwegen heb ik onze Frogbike 62 voorzien van een 9 speed cassette. ( shifter en derailleur had ik nog liggen)
Hij kan nu één extra tandje extra schakelen en dat geeft hem net iets meer ruimte.
