Frog 52S

Lightweight all rounder kids' bike for 5 to 6 Years


WorkCycles has been quietly selling the excellent, lightweight kids bikes from Frog for several years. To be blunt most mainstream kids bikes are awful; lousy ergonomics, poor quality, nonfunctional suspension, horrid cartoon graphics and almost as heavy as the kids trying to ride them. In contrast Frog bikes are high quality, very lightweight and come in nice gender-neutral colors. Our customers (both kids and parents) have been really happy with their Frog bikes.

Frog offers their smaller 20” wheeled bike in two versions, with and without gears. This 52S model is single-speed with hand brakes and weighs just 7,75kg. Frog recommends the 52 for 5-6 year olds but our experience is that many a four year old will already be big enough for it. Most often this is a child’s second bike but it’s also an easy bike to learn on.

Like other Frog bikes the 52S been thoughtfully designed with features such as hand brakes with levers designed for little hands, narrow cranks, rounded axle bolts and easy rolling tires. It’s available in red or froggy green.

Worth noting: Kids learn cycling best on a run bike (a.k.a. “balance bike”, a little bicycle without pedals). So called “training wheels” hinder the child’s learning process and we do not fit them. Here’s a piece I wrote years ago about teaching kids to cycle at a young age:
