Toddlers get Balancing!
Once a child can toddle around it's never to early to expose them to their first biking experience.
A balance bike from our Frog Tadpole range is a great way to start, allowing little ones to build up their core stability and balance. Often it means that once they get onto their first pedal bikes they may not even need stabilisers!

First pedal bikes- Ages 3-5
Once your little one is ready to start pedalling there are plenty of options available. The ever popular Trek Jet and Mystic 16" wheel bikes are great for young learners. They come fitted with stabilisers, a support handle on the back of the saddle to help you guide your child and a basket or holder to hold those all important toys and nature discoveries along the way! They also come in robot and mermaid designs your kids will love!
Trek Jet and Mystic 16" models can ignite a love of riding in your little one!
Frog bikes also have some fasntastic first pedal bike options, with lighteight alumiuim frames, and the option to fit stabilisers if needed. Again they come in a range of bright colours your children will love!

Hybrid bikes- Ages 6 to teen
Frog bikes have a range of flat-handlebar, hybrid bikes ideal for cycle path riding. Their lightweight aluminuium construction make them a joy to handle for young riders. Each bike come with two tyre options as standard, one smoother for speed on tarmac and one more knobbly for slightly bumpier paths. They come in five different sizes and a wide range of colour options. They have Shimano Rapid-fire 8 speed gear systems, and brake levers designed with smaller hands in mind.
Trek DualSport and Neko Kids hybrid bikes are really versatile equally great for use on tarmac, cycle and canal path riding and even a little light off-road use. Coming with fast 26" wheels on a lower strandover frame, these are bike that fit great from the start and can also grow with the rider. They have disc brakes for confident stopping power and Shimano 21-speed gear system- a match for many adult models!
Trek Neko and DS hybrids- the real deal
If you plan on heading to the park, cycle path and exploring some light trail riding with your kids, Trek range of mountain bikes could be just the ticket.
We especially love the Trek Precalibers, which come in both 20" and 24" models.
The Precaliber's dialed fit means the bike can grow with young riders. For example the crank length can be altered as your child grows, with two choice of pedal position options available on the crank.
Check out this You Tube Video for more details.
We also have a number of Trek entry level hardtail mountain bikes in the Marlin and X-Caliber range which come is sizes as small as 13" for pre-teen and teenage riders.
If your child is a budding roadie..we have road bikes with dropped handlebars from ages 6 and up! Frog road bikes are also designed for cyclocross use with Tekro Onyx calilever brakes and two sets of tyres with each bike for on and off-road use.
